CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_REDUCED: Reduce debugging information

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_REDUCED:

Help text

If you say Y here gcc is instructed to generate less debugging information for structure types. This means that tools that need full debugging information (like kgdb or systemtap) won't be happy. But if you merely need debugging information to resolve line numbers there is no loss. Advantage is that build directory object sizes shrink dramatically over a full DEBUG_INFO build and compile times are reduced too. Only works with newer gcc versions.
