But even with this command, one would have to reload the affected module, which
might cause processes to be killed, and then the state of the system is
changed...

Besides, the same code compiled with different flags might cause different
behaviours, so maybe the bug won't manifest itself but with the optimized
version...

Isn't it easy and fun to debug live systems? :-)
