Kernel precompilation questions

Question asked by bubu on Feb 6, 2012

1. Can I use the SKA tool to precompile all my kernels for XYZ AMD's devices and save it as a .bin ? The SKA UI is very confusing.

... or am I forced to make my own precompiler via amd_offline_devices extension?

 

2. Would be that .bin completely stripped without debug symbols ? I've heard you precompile into an ELF format, so I need a way to remove all the debugging info, comments and function names(but, obv, the kernel ones ), etc...

 

I think kernel precompilation is very important to keep our IP, save a lot of time at program's startup and to keep or regcount constant against new drivers.

 

thx
