Well. That didn't help. This is very weird.

This -Wno... option works (is accepted, no warning) on most files
that are being built, but a few files report an error with it:

../drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/radeon_object.c: At top level:
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'

../drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_object.c: At top level:
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'

../drivers/hwmon/dell-smm-hwmon.c: At top level:
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'

CC arch/x86/kernel/cpu/proc.o
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'

../arch/x86/kvm/mmu/mmu.c: At top level:
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than' [-Werror]

../drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/../amdkfd/kfd_chardev.c: At top level:
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'

../kernel/trace/trace_osnoise.c: At top level:
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'

CC kernel/dma/mapping.o
cc1: warning: unrecognized command line option '-Wno-alloc-size-larger-than'


It seems like it might be related to some .config option.

I did a couple of partial builds with V=1 but that info didn't help me any.


If I am the only person seeing (reporting) this build warning, it could
just be (another) SUSE GCC-ism. (had one just last week with -Wmain and
kernel/trace/trace_osnoise.c)
