Just updated from the source rebuild world and kernel do debug a system hang
and notice after hours of recompile (during system hang) that this part
is missing in GENERIC (BETA2)
# Debugging for use in -current
options KDB # Enable kernel debugger support.
options DDB # Support DDB.
options GDB # Support remote GDB.
options INVARIANTS # Enable calls of extra sanity checking
options INVARIANT_SUPPORT # Extra sanity checks of internal structures, required by INVARIANTS
options WITNESS # Enable checks to detect deadlocks and cycles
options WITNESS_SKIPSPIN # Don't run witness on spinlocks for speed
I always thought this will removed if BETA? and RC? phase finished.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
