Well, experience has shown that gcc bugs in this case are so subtle that
they do not show themselves until you push your kernel very hard (lots
of network traffic, long uptime, etc).
So anyone that reports "look, I compiled with -fmadness=awesome and it
works" does not show anything in evidence of the bug(s) being fixed, and
quite frankly, I don't care about this.
The OpenBSD team is a small team, and we have definitely more useful
things to do than testing obscure gcc compilation cases.

Plain bullshit. What's the relation between -Werror and -mnuts=ohyes?
