It's unfortunately a bit backwards that the pre-standard flag is -gsplit-dwarf and what we're proposing as the standard flag is -fdwarf-fission, when the DWARF standard doesn't use the word "Fission" at all (only "split DWARF").

No problems. The naming of the new flags is an important thing, no need to rush here I believe.
