Subject: Re: [PATCH v5 2/5] GCC plugin infrastructure

Hi Emese,

Sorry for my late reply.

> Thanks for the patch. I tested it and there is a problem when I run a parallel make.
> The plugins are compiled later than needed (e.g., scripts/mod/empty.o). There is a lot of important

Ah, I missed that.
