OK.
Your previous patch was applied (and we have not received 0-day report so far),
so this makes sense now.

IMO, this description is not helpful in any way in upstream.

Moreover,
785f11aa595bc3d4e74096cbd598ada54ecc0d81
did not break anything.   It sound unfair to me.

Could you move this a bit later, please?



# These warnings generated too much noise in a regular build.
# Use make W=1 to enable them (see scripts/Makefile.extrawarn)
KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning, unused-but-set-variable)
KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning, unused-const-variable)
endif

  << INSERT HERE >>

# The arch Makefile can set ARCH_{CPP,A,C}FLAGS to override the default
# values of the respective KBUILD_* variables
ARCH_CPPFLAGS :=
ARCH_AFLAGS :=
ARCH_CFLAGS :=
include arch/$(SRCARCH)/Makefile






arch/$(SRCARCH)/Makefile is included for config targets
for KBUILD_DEFCONFIG, but no reason to compute compiler flags.
I want to cut unnecessary cc-option parsing.
