            Bug ID: 193768
           Summary: src.conf/make.conf: CFLAGS/COPTFLAGS inconsistency
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: ohartman at zedat.fu-berlin.de

man make.conf states, that COPTFLAGS is used for building/compiling the kernel
(exclusively). The question arises: are kernel modules NOT kernel or are they

The problem I face is that with optimization level -O3 loader.efi gets
miscompiled and a
UEFI laptop stops/reject booting. To avoid other interference, I defined
in /etc/src.conf accordingly, but leave CFLAGS?=-O3 in /etc/make.conf for
compilation of
regular ports and the rest of the OS.

I can observe that with CFLAGS set, either in make.conf, or src.conf or mutual
the CFLAGS is ALWAYS incorporated when kernel stuff like modules and even the
is built! I consider this inconsitent, since loader.efi is definitely kernel
stuff as well as modules.
