Currently we build debug infos only for selected images for size
A recent gcc compiler supports to not emit structure debug informations.
This drastically reduces the amount of data produced. However it also
makes it impossible to debug into structures, so it is only usefull for
gathering line numbers of problems.
This setting reduces the size by 70%:
Maybe this could be used to enable the possibility to do limited
debugging on all images without emiting too much preasure on the

Probably not a bad idea. However, such partially debuggable kernels
should be marked clearly. It is not nice to spend weeks trying to
reproduce a bug and then to notice that the debug information for that
version to be minimal.
How about using "-partial-dbg" instead of "-dbg" for those? ;-)
