Looking at this patch with "--word-diff" helps a little (it's too bad we
can't break these mile long option sequences to multiple lines). So:

* For GCC49:

- The compiler option "-mcmodel=small" is upstreamed from both
NOOPT_GCC49_AARCH64_CC_FLAGS and DEBUG_GCC49_AARCH64_CC_FLAGS to
GCC49_AARCH64_CC_FLAGS. This is a no-op for DEBUG and NOOPT, however the
option will now also apply to RELEASE.

- As a consequence, "-mcmodel=tiny" is not usable for RELEASE, and it is
removed.

- The same upstreaming occurs for "-z common-page-size=0x1000", in
GCC49_AARCH64_DLINK_FLAGS. RELEASE needs no fixup, it simply benefits
from the change. However, RELEASE_GCC49_AARCH64_DLINK_XIPFLAGS needs an
override, to stick with the original 0x20 alignment.

* For GCC5:

- GCC5_AARCH64_CC_FLAGS is defined as GCC49_AARCH64_CC_FLAGS, therefore
the "-mcmodel=small" inheritance from the above is automatic. Only the
DEBUG/NOOPT removals, and the RELEASE fixup are needed.

- GCC5_AARCH64_DLINK_FLAGS is defined as GCC49_AARCH64_DLINK_FLAGS,
therefore the same inheritance pattern applies to "-z
common-page-size=0x1000". I'm noticing an omission here however: "-z
common-page-size=0x1000" should have been removed from
NOOPT_GCC5_AARCH64_DLINK_FLAGS as well.

- The RELEASE_GCC5_AARCH64_DLINK_XIPFLAGS override is spelled out the same.


So... do you agree that NOOPT_GCC5_AARCH64_DLINK_FLAGS should have been
trimmed as well?

Furthermore, I suggest squeezing the word RELEASE into the subject,
given that the change is only observable in RELEASE builds.

Thanks!
Laszlo
