Kbuild: Add a option to enable dwarf4 v2

I found that a lot of unresolvable variables when using gdb on the
kernel become resolvable when dwarf4 is enabled. So add a Kconfig flag
to enable it.

It definitely increases the debug information size, but on the other
hand this isn't so bad when debug fusion is used.

v2: Use cc-option

Generate dwarf4 debug info. This requires recent versions
of gcc and gdb. It makes the debug information larger.
But it significantly improves the success of resolving
variables in gdb on optimized code.
