Does gcc not pass '-g' through to the assembler backend? When I
added -Wa,-gdwarf-2 I saw no change in file sizes.
In the gcc-2.x and 3. days we had to manually add this for the
ppc and mips compilers, so I did it out of habbit.
Seems it is not longer necessary with the newer gcc's
(cd arch/x86 ;gcc -... -g -D__XEN__ -D__ASSEMBLY__ -v -c trampoline.S
gcc version 3.3.6 (Debian 1:3.3.6-10)
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-linux-gnu/3.3.6/cc1 -E ... -o - |
as --gdwarf2 -V -Qy -o trampoline.o -
If not, then still would -Wa,-g not be better? It should use the
best debug format for the target system, just as -g does for gcc.
Otherwise I would think we should be using -gdwarf-2 for C files as
