That is because for -Os, push is certainly shorter than sub $8,%rsp.

If you want to test for this gcc bug in the kernel, supposedly one should
just take the short testcase from the GCC PR, try to compile it and see if
you e.g. get a -fcompare-debug -Os failure with the testcase.
In that case, you could instead of giving up completely just
-fno-var-tracking-assignments.
