Ah yes, here's a v1.1.

Let's leave the cc-option check until we sort out the min supported
gcc version.

CC: stable too.

Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: Steal gcc's pie from the very beginning

So Sebastian turned off the PIE for kernel builds but that was too late
- Kbuild.include already uses KBUILD_CFLAGS and trying to disable gcc
options with, say cc-disable-warning, fails:

  gcc -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs
  ...
  -Wno-sign-compare -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables -Wframe-address -c -x c /dev/null -o .31392.tmp
  /dev/null:1:0: error: code model kernel does not support PIC mode

because that returns an error and we can't disable the warning. For
example in this case:

KBUILD_CFLAGS   += $(call cc-disable-warning,frame-address,)

which leads to gcc issuing all those warnings again.

So let's turn off PIE/PIC at the earliest possible moment, when we
declare KBUILD_CFLAGS so that cc-disable-warning picks it up too.

Also, we need the $(call cc-option ...) because -fno-PIE is supported
since gcc v3.4 and our lowest supported gcc version is 3.2 right now.

Thanks, applied to kbuild.git#rc-fixes.
