I can offer another bit of information for a software development discussion. 💭

The affected source file can be compiled for the processor architecture “x86_64”
by a tool like “GCC 6.4.1+r251631-1.3” from the software distribution
“openSUSE Tumbleweed” with the following command example.

my_cc=/usr/bin/gcc-6 \
&& my_module=sound/soc/codecs/da7218.o \
&& for XYZ in 0 s 3; do echo " _____ $XYZ _____" \
&& my_extra="-O$XYZ" \
&& git checkout ':/^ASoC: da7218: Delete two error messages for a failed memory allocation in da7218_of_to_pdata' \
&& make -j4 CC="${my_cc}" HOSTCC="${my_cc}" EXTRA_CFLAGS="${my_extra}" allmodconfig "${my_module}" \
&& size "${my_module}" \
&& git checkout ':/^ASoC: da7218: Use common error handling code in da7218_of_to_pdata' \
&& make -j4 CC="${my_cc}" HOSTCC="${my_cc}" EXTRA_CFLAGS="${my_extra}" allmodconfig "${my_module}" \
&& size "${my_module}"; done


🔮 Do you find the following differences worth for further clarification?

╔═════════╤══════╗

║ O3 │ +11 ║
