I did some experiments:
- a kernel with the files from i386/i386 and *acpi*.o compiled -DDEBUG
  hangs instead of resetting
- a kernel with kern_*.o,  *acpi*.o and uvm*.o compiled with -DDEBUG
  (and everything else without -DDEBUG) resets just after the first line
  of green message (which I think is about symbols, but it resets too fast
  to really be sure)
- a kernel with everything but kern_*.o,  *acpi*.o and uvm*.o compiled with
  -DDEBUG boots

So, at first glance, it looks like DEBUG or DIAGNOSTIC doesn't make it
work because it changes code, but because it changes sizes.
