Enabled by default? We don't enable DEBUG by default and these also tend to
add more code/time to a system.
Documenting them in a common way and providing an interface via "options" to
enable them sounds fine. Enabling them by default seems a horrible thing
to do to users for a GENERIC kernel. While that does have the kitchen sink
for options in it, it specifically doesn't have DEBUG turned on.
