Not really. OMAP3_EMU will enable ETM/ETB drivers within omap, but this
particular patch is also needed if you're using an external hardware
debugger to debug code across OFF modes.

This option allows for enabling certain debugging functionality in runtime
(via a sysfs file), which is turned off by default. It is debatable whether
this option should default to 'y' or 'n', seeing as it doesn't add much
overhead to the normal usecase.

But I see that the wording is misleading and unclear, so I'll try to come
up with something more descriptive.
