    My bug-spotting rate doesn't seem so good lately. But if the thing doesn't
    break the kernel when configged off then sure, let's put it in -mm with a
    big doesnt-work-yet warning on it and hopefully some clever person like
    Chuck will come along and fix it.

    That being said, we don't seem to be getting a lot of value from
    DEBUG_PAGEALLOC any more. I guess we fixed a pile of long-standing
    problems when it first went in and the reintroduction rate is low.
