I thought the commit log covered this, suggestions for improvement welcome.

Chris' change addressed case 1a), but also took us from 2a) to 2b). But
we want 2a).

I suspect Chris missed that pr_debug()'s output is visible by default if
CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG and DEBUG are both defined.

I used the get_maintainer.pl script. Thanks for adding Chris.


P.S. FYI, your e-mail had a very aggressive tone to me, not sure what for.
