      kbuild: strip generated symbols from *.ko · ad7a953c
      Jan Beulich authored
      This patch changes the way __crc_ symbols are being resolved from
      using ld to do so to using the assembler, thus allowing these symbols
      to be marked local (the linker creates then as global ones) and hence
      allow stripping (for modules) or ignoring (for vmlinux) them. While at
      this, also strip other generated symbols during module installation.
      
      One potentially debatable point is the handling of the flags passeed
      to gcc when translating the intermediate assembly file into an object:
      passing $(c_flags) unchanged doesn't work as gcc passes --gdwarf2 to
      gas whenever is sees any -g* option, even for -g0, and despite the
      fact that the compiler would have already produced all necessary debug
      info in the C->assembly translation phase. I took the approach of just
      filtering out all -g* options, but an alternative to such negative
      filtering might be to have a positive filter which might, in the ideal
      case allow just all the -Wa,* options to pass through.

      kbuild: filter away debug symbols from kernel symbols · aab34ac8

      reported that he saw a lot of symbols like this:
      
      0000000000000b24 N DW.aio.h.903a6d92.2
      0000000000000bce N DW.task_io_accounting.h.8d8de327.0
      0000000000000bec N DW.hrtimer.h.c23659c6.0
      
      in his System.map / kallsyms output.
      
      Simple solution is to skip all debugging
      symbols (they are marked 'N').

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
