We have now removed the debug code completely.  The code is quite
stable and we won't need these remnants from early days anymore.

I am not aware of any useful kernel facilities to replace our debug
macros, i.e. printing of debug messages, controlled by a bit mask
passed in as a module parameter, hexdumping of fames, etc.  Of course,
there are other things like kprobes but sometimes printk(KERN_DEBUG...)
is more convenient and that's why people write their own DBG() macros.
