There are many new gcc's floating around, and many new options to
gcc (pentium gcc provides one example). In the event that
people testing their kernel decide to change the default
CFLAGS through something like

make CFLAGS='-O3 -mfoobar ... '

There is no record of what they used. The diff I wrote
adds functionality to put this in include/linux/compile.h, as
well as a /proc entry to display the CFLAGS string.
