I tried to test this on my setup - it is a Intel Atom with 2 cores.
16 GB RAM, a 7200 RPM stat disk.
In other words a low-spec setup.

Base config was "make allnoconfig"

make KCFLAGS=-g
real    3m35.967s
user    12m19.270s
sys     1m15.082s

make KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
real    3m33.366s
user    12m11.156s
sys     1m17.772s

I did like this:
echo time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
echo time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-g
time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-g
echo time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
echo time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-g
time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-g
echo time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-gsplit-dwarf
echo time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-g
time make -j4 -s KCFLAGS=-g

The figures are from last run - but the other runs had compareable times.
So in short I see a ~3 seconds speedup - out of 210 seconds.
Thats less than I anticipated.

But a speed-up never the less - which was consistent over all three runs.
