Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] init: Do not select DEBUG_KERNEL by default

I think we have to do both. We need to go after the users as well as
solve the immediate problem per this patch.

As Mathieu identified, CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL is being used all over the
place and getting subsystem owners to remove let alone add a check
to checkpatch is just going to take time.

Please let us know if you are OK with this plan.
