	  faster. However, if neither FRAME_POINTER nor ARM_UNWIND are enabled,
	  when a problem occurs with the kernel, the information that is
	  reported is severely limited.

config ARM_UNWIND
	bool "Enable stack unwinding support"
	depends on AEABI && EXPERIMENTAL
	default y
	help
	  This option enables stack unwinding support in the kernel
	  using the information automatically generated by the
	  compiler. The resulting kernel image is slightly bigger but
	  the performance is not affected. Currently, this feature
	  only works with EABI compilers. If unsure say Y.

config DEBUG_USER
	bool "Verbose user fault messages"
	help
	  When a user program crashes due to an exception, the kernel can
	  print a brief message explaining what the problem was. This is
	  sometimes helpful for debugging but serves no purpose on a
	  production system. Most people should say N here.

	  In addition, you need to pass user_debug=N on the kernel command
	  line to enable this feature.  N consists of the sum of:

	      1 - undefined instruction events
	      2 - system calls
	      4 - invalid data aborts
	      8 - SIGSEGV faults
	     16 - SIGBUS faults

config DEBUG_ERRORS
	bool "Verbose kernel error messages"
	depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
	help
	  This option controls verbose debugging information which can be
	  printed when the kernel detects an internal error. This debugging
	  information is useful to kernel hackers when tracking down problems,
	  but mostly meaningless to other people. It's safe to say Y unless
	  you are concerned with the code size or don't want to see these
	  messages.

config DEBUG_ICEDCC

	depends on DEBUG_LL
	help
	  Say Y here if you want the debug print routines to direct their
	  output to the EmbeddedICE macrocell's DCC channel using
	  co-processor 14. This is known to work on the ARM9 style ICE
	  channel.

	  It does include a timeout to ensure that the system does not
	  totally freeze when there is nothing connected to read.

config DEBUG_DC21285_PORT
	bool "Kernel low-level debugging messages via footbridge serial port"
	depends on DEBUG_LL && FOOTBRIDGE
	help
	  Say Y here if you want the debug print routines to direct their
	  output to the serial port in the DC21285 (Footbridge). Saying N
	  will cause the debug messages to appear on the first 16550
	  serial port.

config DEBUG_CLPS711X_UART2
	bool "Kernel low-level debugging messages via UART2"
	depends on DEBUG_LL && ARCH_CLPS711X
	help
	  Say Y here if you want the debug print routines to direct their
