Subject: Re: [PATCH] kbuild: add support to generate LLVM bitcode files

1) Can we drop the test for $(COMPILER) here?


2) And help section should be updated to list .ll too.

I will be adding it too.

3) This chunk belongs together with the other chunk.
There is no reason to separate .S => .ll and .c => .ll rules.

Sure. But in fact I was not able to create the .ll from .S and neither
create the .s
from the .S in some assembly files on kernel. Do you know how it works?

4) Also $(DISABLE_LTO) looks like a left-over.


5) quiet_cmd_cc_ll_c = CC $(quiet_modtag)  $@
      cmd_cc_ll_c = $(CC) $(c_flags) ....
