[PATCH] Turn off sibling call optimization w/ frame pointers
Matthias Urlichs [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:10:05 +0000 (00:10 -0700)]
Frame pointers are supposed to enable debuggers to reliably tell where a
call comes from.  That is defeated by GCC's sibling call optimization (aka
tail recursion elimination).

This patch turns this optimization off when compiling with frame pointers.
