    The abovce disables the prompt but
    arch/x86_64/Kconifg.x86_64 set the value to y so EARLY_PRINTK is
    always enabled (see answer I wrote to Kay).

    This patchset leaves room for futher clean-up which is
    welcome. The aim was to unify the two Kconfig.debug file
    where Randy did a quick and good job. The aim was not
    maximum unification of the Kconfig files used for the two
    ARCH's this comes later - and there are much to be done

    Please let me know if you see other issues woth the patch serie.
