It does affect CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO kernels, and that config option is
set for all Red Hat kernels (-debug or plain).

I'm not aware of anything trivial like a gcc --report-fixed-PRs kind
of thing.  But, kbuild could conceivably have a run-time test
involving test-running gcc with in that compare-debug mode with a
suitable test case.  We use the latter technique in systemtap for
auto-configuring to kernel versions/features; we got the $(CHECK_BUILD)
trick from vmware module makefiles.  It could be recast as a variant
of $(cc-option ...).
