Re: [PATCH] Steam out non-explicit -fno-tree-loop-distribute-patterns for LTO options

Hi Richard:

I think preserve -fno-builtin is better than
-fno-tree-loop-distribute-patterns too,

However if we preserve -fno-builtin, the coming problem is should we
preserve all -fbuiltin-* and do the check logic[1] in common code in

btw, in our internal gcc 4.9.x tree is move -fno-builtin to common
group (CL_COMMON) (preserve in lto since it's in CL_COMMON)  and check
it in tree-loop-distribution.c for temporary workaround .
