That is very possible. The -g has been there since xfs was originally merged
back in 2002, and I could not figure out why it was there (unlike the
-DSTATIC=""
and -DDEBUG flags that are set in the same line).

On the other hand, my feeling is that setting -g should not cause problems
with objtool, if CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is ok.
