Subject: [PATCH v3 1/2] Kbuild: make DWARF version a choice

Modifies CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF4 to be a member of a choice. Adds an
explicit CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF2, which is the default. Does so in a
way that's forward compatible with existing configs, and makes adding
future versions more straightforward.
