Subject[PATCH] kbuild: Disable extra debugging info in .s output
Date
From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

Modern gcc adds view assignments, reset assertion checking in .loc
directives and a couple more additional debug markers, which clutters
the asm output unnecessarily:

For example:

bsp_resume:
.LFB3466:
.loc 1 1868 1 is_stmt 1 view -0
.cfi_startproc
.loc 1 1869 2 view .LVU73
# arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.c:1869: if (this_cpu->c_bsp_resume)
.loc 1 1869 14 is_stmt 0 view .LVU74
movq this_cpu(%rip), %rax # this_cpu, this_cpu
movq 64(%rax), %rax # this_cpu.94_1->c_bsp_resume, _2
# arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.c:1869: if (this_cpu->c_bsp_resume)
.loc 1 1869 5 view .LVU75
testq %rax, %rax # _2
je .L8 #,
.loc 1 1870 3 is_stmt 1 view .LVU76
movq $boot_cpu_data, %rdi #,
jmp __x86_indirect_thunk_rax

or
.loc 2 57 9 view .LVU478
.loc 2 57 9 view .LVU479
.loc 2 57 9 view .LVU480
.loc 2 57 9 view .LVU481
.LBB1385:
.LBB1383:
.LBB1379:
.LBB1377:
.LBB1375:
.loc 2 57 9 view .LVU482
.loc 2 57 9 view .LVU483
movl %edi, %edx # cpu, cpu
.LVL87:
.loc 2 57 9 is_stmt 0 view .LVU484

That MOV in there is drowned in debugging information and latter makes
it hard to follow the asm. And that DWARF info is not really needed for
asm output staring.

Disable the debug information generation which clutters the asm output
unnecessarily:

bsp_resume:
.LFB3466:
.loc 1 1868 1
# arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.c:1869: if (this_cpu->c_bsp_resume)
.loc 1 1869 14
movq this_cpu(%rip), %rax # this_cpu, this_cpu
movq 64(%rax), %rax # this_cpu.94_1->c_bsp_resume, _2
# arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.c:1869: if (this_cpu->c_bsp_resume)
.loc 1 1869 5
testq %rax, %rax # _2
je .L8 #,
# arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.c:1870: this_cpu->c_bsp_resume(&boot_cpu_data);
.loc 1 1870 3
movq $boot_cpu_data, %rdi #,
jmp __x86_indirect_thunk_rax
