Now that you mention it, how about ?=
disable_extra_cc_dbg ?= $(call cc-option,-gno-as-locview-support)
disable_extra_cc_dbg += $(call cc-option,-fno-dwarf2-cfi-asm)
disable_extra_cc_dbg += $(call cc-option,-feliminate-unused-debug-symbols)
disable_extra_cc_dbg += $(call cc-option,-gno-statement-frontiers)
With it, the slowdown of the incremental build is ~0.2s (on an old laptop):
defconfig without: 9.6128 +- 0.0327 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.34% )
defconfig with: 9.8483 +- 0.0273 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.28% )
