I'm against flipping it when we enter RC.  I'm not against flipping
it at the branch point.

This case is a bit of an exception as I noted before.  I think enough
people will disable it in custom kernels that it will get a reasonable
amount of testing during the regular development cycle in -current.
This is not true of many options, but I think it's true of this one.

You should ensure that we are not introducing any API changes when
switching to/from DIAGNOSTIC (as Chuck noted).
