This is true, though on ARM 32-bit kernels DEBUG_LL gets used by the
kernel self-decompressor and also before earlycon has a chance to run,
this is useful to debugging memory issues where your memory
configuration is incorrect typically.

Either way is fine with me (accepting or dropping) the patch, though
there is probably minimal impact in just accepting such a change.
