LoL.
Other than beer, I am fine with v9.

Personally, I thought v8 (no CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF_TOOLCHAIN_DEFAULT)
was good too, but I do not have a strong opinion about
leaving the compiler's freedom to choose the dwarf version.

Unless somebody has an objection, I will pick up v9 for the next MW.


Meanwhile, if you want to give reviewed-by / tested-by
please do so.
