This seems to work:

Subject: [PATCH] x86/build: convert function graph '-Os' error to warning

For pre-4.6.0 versions of GCC, which don't have '-mfentry', the
'-maccumulate-outgoing-args' option is required for function graph
tracing in order to avoid GCC bug 42109. However, GCC ignores
'-maccumulate-outgoing-args' when '-Os' is also set.

Currently we force a build error to prevent that scenario, but that
breaks randconfigs. So change the error to a warning which also
disables CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE.
