Yeah, the build is really noisy now.

Yeah, I wonder if adding this to a kernel janitors TODO list or somesuch
would help speeding up the process.

Maybe Greg knows.

Greg, the question is whether we can get people to help out with


fixes around the tree. Currently, there are ~1400 warnings and we want
to have 0 and then add that option to the main Makefile.

It is very easy to do: you simply build the kernel with W=1, choose one
-Wmissing-prototypes warning and fix it by adding a function prototype
or declaring the function static.

It should be a pretty easy for newbies to get involved...

Sounds good.



Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
