Subject[PATCHv3] Make CONFIG_EXPERT select CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL to unhide debug options
Several debugging options currently default to y, such as
CONFIG_DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE and CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA. Embedded users might
want to turn those options off to save space; however, turning them off
requires turning on CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL to unhide them. Since
CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL exists specifically to unhide debugging options, and
CONFIG_EXPERT exists specifically to unhide options potentially needed
by experts and/or embedded users, make CONFIG_EXPERT automatically imply
CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL.

Change various debugging options to only reference DEBUG_KERNEL, not
EXPERT.

Note that DEBUG_MEMORY_INIT defaulted to !EXPERT, which seemed wrong,
since EXPERT should not directly affect anything except the availability
of other options. (And EXPERT definitely shouldn't mean "implicitly
turn off default safety features".) Change it to default to y, which
means that turning on EXPERT does not automatically disable it, but will
provide the option to disable it.

v3: Changed other debugging options to stop referencing EXPERT.
