on x86_64, allmodconfig:

$ gcc --version
gcc (SUSE Linux) 7.5.0

$ sparse --version
0.6.2


I seem to be having some problems with kernel/time/timekeeping.c,
including a segfault.

a. Is it sparse that segfaults?

b. what prints this message?
make[3]: *** Deleting file 'kernel/time/timekeeping.o'

c. I would prefer to be able to tell the source of warning/error messages,
i.e., gcc or sparse. Especially when they are intermixed.
So one solution IMO would be to be able to do a full sparse check _only_,
without the gcc build. That way the messages would obviously be from sparse.

Another reason to do that is that I often do gcc builds and then would like
to follow that up with a sparse check build, but currently that means that
I have to do the full gcc + sparse build, which is really time consuming
since I have a wimpy laptop.
