SubjectRe: [PATCH] config: arm: omap2: remove PROVE_LOCKING from defconfig

I'm all for this, but this disables also other less intrusive
debug options. It used to be that we'd get locking issues merged
into drivers and I think that's how it originally got enabled.

So we should take a look which ones we can or want to keep.
Or just disable CONFIG_DEBUG completely.

For distros, that's multi_v7_defconfig nowadays for most part
so I think most people using omap2plus_defconfig are developers
working on various devices.

Regards,

Tony
