Anyway, here are stats: We had these a long time ago, but I removed them in commit a80847d86a8865a78fdbebe7f9e2533f7a74e010 because I thought they were the default at -Os and only relevant to debloating -O3. However I've heard some suggestions that -Os is no longer worthwhile and that -O2 with overrides to turn off the useless/harmful alignment would be a better default. Do you have any input on this topic? Rich
