I'm working on this.

the immediate problem has been resolved by turning off DIAGNOSTIC and DEBUG
in all GENERIC kernel configs.  this was done for i386 years ago with
no apparent downside, so it seems reasonable to do the same everywhere else.

in the longer term, we need to fix the usage of these conditionals
so that they do not change the kernel ABI and thus do not make
LKMs incompatible.  I'll look into that once 3.0 is done.
