I think the degree of slow down now, compared with the past, makes this
issue a bug. If things are like they are now, I won't be running debug
kernels on my rawhide systems. It costs me too much time. It would be
nice to know why things changed, as maybe some adjustments could be made
(or a bug fixed) so that debug kernels can provide useful information
without making such a big impact.
