Use -fno-strict-aliasing if you use -Os.  Otherwise, -Os is stricter
than -O.

On second thoughts, -Os implies -f-strict-aliasing because -Os may
need strict aliasing for the same reasons as -O2.  We've seen -O2
in combination with broken aliasing in libm cause fatal errors.
Better find part of -O2 that needs strict aliasing and turn it off
