Clang generates slightly different code based on the optimization
level. It attaches specific attributes to each function generated for
-Oz --> "minsize"
-Os --> "optsize"
-O0 --> "optnone" (this is also the default).
At -O, -O1, -O2 and -O3 no attribute gets attached. They're just
handled by configuring LLVM slightly differently while running its
There may be other differences, but if so I'm not aware of them.
Another question more suited for cfe-dev really.
