I'm just asking why omit frame pointers and make it harder to do stuff
like profiling? What performance benefits are we seeking for in BPF
samples?

We want -Wmissing-prototypes and -Wstrict-prototypes for cross-compile
and non-cross-compile cases, right? So let's specify them as common
set of options, instead of relying on KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS or
HOST_EXTRACFLAGS to have them. Otherwise we'll be getting extra
warnings for just cross-compile case, which is not good. If you are
worrying about having duplicate -W flags, seems like it's handled by
GCC already, so shouldn't be a problem.
