SubjectRe: [PATCH] riscv: kbuild: drop CONFIG_RISCV_ISA_C

I know that, but i'm looking for arguments why RVC could't be kept as
an option, especialy it is only an optimisation option without
behavioral/code changes.

That baseline make sense for heavy linux distributions, where you
expect everybody to compile with a baseline set of ISA extentions, to
make binary exchanges easier.
But for smaller systems, i do not see advantages having RVC forced.
