Just the standard ones for debugging: -g for symbolic support.

You may want to use -O0 to turn off optimization.  The linux kernel 
won't link when compiled with -O0 because the expected inlining doesn't 
happen (symptom: linking gives missing symbols) -- I don't recall if 
u-boot has that limitation too.
