I am using CONFIG_BUG=y, however I don't have CONFIG_DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE
and hence I fall into the part which doesn't print the file and the
line where the BUG was found.

With Simon's patch if my .config had:

CONFIG_BUG=y
CONFIG_GENERIC_BUG is not set
CONFIG_DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE is not set

I would fall into the same BUG definition that is causing issues:

#define BUG() do { *(int *)0 = 0; } while (1)
OTOH, is not like "Use generic BUG() handler" gives the choice of
removing GENERIC_BUG given that it is not prompted in menuconfig and
auto selected, if this is the intention is there any reason to keep
the #else part of /* not CONFIG_GENERIC_BUG */? there is no way we can
use it with this patch, right?
Regards,

Omar
