One thing that I use as baseline is that if "info gcc" says that it is not
safe (such as -ffast-math, -fno-rtti, -fnoexceptions and various others).
Many of these optimization options are application specific and should be
set by the upstream build scripts. In other words, filtering away to
avoid compiler bugs is something I'm willing to do, filtering away stupid
defaults is not.
