SubjectRe: Difficulties for compilation without extra optimisation
From

> Why would you compile the kernel without optimization?

Can another reason be occasionally still relevant?

Will the compilation be a bit quicker when extra data processing
could be omitted?

Would you like to keep the software situation in this way?

* Can this goal be also achieved without the addition of “broken code”?

* How do you think about to improve the error handling there?

Regards,
Markus
