    Subject[PATCH] clarify CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO help text
    The following patch adds some extra clarification to the CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO
    Kconfig help text. The current text is mostly a recursive definition and
    doesn't really say much of anything. When I first read this I thought it
    was going to enable extra verbosity in debug messages or something, but it
    is only enabling the "gcc -g" compile option in the Makefile.

    If you say Y here the resulting kernel image will include
    debugging info resulting in a larger kernel image.
    + This adds debug symbols to the kernel and modules (gcc -g), and
    + is needed if you intend to use kernel crashdump or binary object
    + tools like crash, kgdb, LKCD, gdb, etc on the kernel.
    Say Y here only if you plan to debug the kernel.

    If unsure, say N.
