Subject: Re: [PATCH v4 2/3] Kbuild: make DWARF version a choice

Sedat,
Thanks for testing, and congrats on https://lwn.net/Articles/839772/.
I always appreciate you taking the time to help test my work, and
other Clang+Linux kernel patches!

^ DEBUG_CFLAGS are set for everyone (all toolchains) if
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is defined.

^ "If not using dwarf 2 and LLVM_IAS=1", ie. CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF5
&& CONFIG_CC_IS_GCC

That's what Arvind requested on v2, IIUC:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/X8psgMuL4jMjP%2FOy@rani.riverdale.lan/

> When I use GCC v10.2.1 DEBUG_CFLAGS are not set.

You should have -gdwarf-4 (and not -Wa,-gwarf-4) set for DEBUG_CFLAGS
when compiling with GCC and enabling CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF4. Can you
please confirm? (Perhaps you may have accidentally disabled
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO by rerunning `make defconfig`?)
