When using gcc (SUSE Linux) 7.5.0 (on openSUSE 15.3), I see a
build warning:

../kernel/trace/trace_osnoise.c: In function 'start_kthread':
../kernel/trace/trace_osnoise.c:1461:8: warning: 'main' is usually a function [-Wmain]
  void *main = osnoise_main;
        ^~~~

Quieten that warning by using "-Wno-main". It's OK to use "main" as a
declaration name in the kernel.

Build-tested on most ARCHes.
