kbuild: implement several W= levels
Building a kernel with "make W=1" produces far too much noise to be useful. Divide the warning options in three groups: W=1 - warnings that may be relevant and does not occur too often W=2 - warnings that occur quite often but may still be relevant W=3 - the more obscure warnings, can most likely be ignored When building the whole kernel, those levels produce: W=1 - 4859 warnings W=2 - 1394 warnings W=3 - 86666 warnings respectively. Warnings have been counted with Geert's script at http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geert/linux-log/linux-log-summary.pl Many warnings occur from .h files so fixing one file may have a nice effect on the total number of warnings. With these changes I am actually tempted to try W=1 now and then. Previously there was just too much noise. Borislav: - make the W= levels exclusive - move very noisy and making little sense for the kernel warnings to W=3 - drop -Woverlength-strings due to useless warning message - copy explanatory text for the different warning levels to 'make help' - recount warnings per level Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org> Signed-off-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@alien8.de> Cc: Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com> Cc: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert@linux-m68k.org> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>
