I wonder what the two options in $subject do...

For -ma-step, I can guess this assumes that the code will run on an A stepping
CPU, but in this case, will it run on a B? If I want to compile a kernel for a
B stepping processor, I guess I have to remove this option?

The second I really don't know...
