Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+menu "Kernel hacking"
+source "lib/Kconfig.debug"
+ bool "Early printk" if EMBEDDED && DEBUG_KERNEL
+ default y
+ help
+ Write kernel log output directly into the VGA buffer or to a serial
+ port.
+ This is useful for kernel debugging when your machine crashes very
+ early before the console code is initialized. For normal operation
+ it is not recommended because it looks ugly and doesn't cooperate
+ with klogd/syslogd or the X server. You should normally N here,
+ unless you want to debug such a crash.
+ bool "Check for stack overflows"
+ depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
+config KPROBES
+ bool "Kprobes"
+ depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
+ help
+ Kprobes allows you to trap at almost any kernel address and
+ execute a callback function. register_kprobe() establishes
+ a probepoint and specifies the callback. Kprobes is useful
+ for kernel debugging, non-intrusive instrumentation and testing.
+ If in doubt, say "N".
+ bool "Stack utilization instrumentation"
+ depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
+ help
+ Enables the display of the minimum amount of free stack which each
+ task has ever had available in the sysrq-T and sysrq-P debug output.
+ This option will slow down process creation somewhat.
+comment "Page alloc debug is incompatible with Software Suspend on i386"
+ bool "Page alloc debugging"
+ help
+ Unmap pages from the kernel linear mapping after free_pages().
+ This results in a large slowdown, but helps to find certain types
+ of memory corruptions.
+config 4KSTACKS
+ bool "Use 4Kb for kernel stacks instead of 8Kb"
+ depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
+ help
+ If you say Y here the kernel will use a 4Kb stacksize for the
+ kernel stack attached to each process/thread. This facilitates
+ running more threads on a system and also reduces the pressure
+ on the VM subsystem for higher order allocations. This option
+ will also use IRQ stacks to compensate for the reduced stackspace.
