Will do - and add it after fixing a typo I just noticed, the committed
description is:

Don't keep the frame pointer in a register for leaf functions.  This
avoids the instructions to save, set up and restore frame pointers and
makes an extra register available in leaf functions.  The option
@samp{-fomit-frame-pointer} removes the frame pointer for all functions
which might make debugging harder.
