Description

The current loader build is using -O2 optimize flag, switch to use -Os instead. The reason is to save space in binary sizes, this is especially important with BIOS version.

Before:

-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     sys       188928 nov 18 16:48 bootia32.efi
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     sys       165376 nov 18 16:48 bootx64.efi
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     sys       499200 nov 18 16:48 loader32.efi
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     sys       530944 nov 18 16:48 loader64.efi
-r--r--r--   1 root     sys       185856 nov 10 13:12 gptzfsboot
-r--r--r--   1 root     sys       417792 nov 18 16:48 loader
