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.
