Our Makefiles have lines like this:
iscsi.o-cflags := $(LIBISCSI_CFLAGS)
I don't think there is a direct mechanism to apply cflags to a whole
directory or just to block-obj-y/block-obj-m, but just looping over them
could work. I'm not a Makefile expert at all, but after some toying with
a simple example, something like this might work:
$(foreach x,$(block-obj-y),$(eval $x-cflags += -Wstack-size=2048))

Yes, this is true.
