The first example utilises the trick that a config option expands
to 'y' when selected.
- CFLAGS_KERNEL $(CC) options specific for built-in
+ KBUILD_AFLAGS_KERNEL $(AS) options specific for built-in
- $(CFLAGS_KERNEL) contains extra C compiler flags used to compile
+ $(KBUILD_AFLAGS_KERNEL) contains extra C compiler flags used to compile
resident kernel code.
- CFLAGS_MODULE $(CC) options specific for modules
+ KBUILD_AFLAGS_MODULE Options for $(AS) when building modules
- $(CFLAGS_MODULE) contains extra C compiler flags used to compile code
- for loadable kernel modules.
+ $(KBUILD_AFLAGS_MODULE) is used to add arch specific options that
