    Most debugging code makes the kernel bigger, slower... and easier to
    debug, no?

    It's not a question of not being -able- to locate sources; it's a
    question of being able to look at a bug report and triage it quickly
    without digging around to find the kernel du jour that produced it. *shrug*
