One thing in favor of documenting the need for -fno-omit-frame-pointer
instead of enforcing it in the driver:
suppose a program, part of which is compiled with -faddress-sanitizer, but
some other part is compiled w/o it.
If -fno-omit-frame-pointer is implied by -faddress-sanitizer and not
explicitly given by users, some part of the program will not have frame
pointers and stacks will be short.
I am inclined to document the need to -fno-omit-frame-pointer.
Other opinions?
