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!
