There was a change to arch/i386/config/GENERIC back in April that changed the 
description of DIAGNOSTIC from "cheap kernel consistency checks" to "xpensive 
kernel consistency checks".  Judging by the context, it looks like a 
recognition of the actual state of affairs, not a change that *made* it 
expensive.  Kudos to fvdl for updating the comment to reflect reality!
