Ah, OK, I thought you really see it more often and that it also relate
to Pavan's comment on 02/14 about the missing treatment of exiting tasks.

If this is only for testing/debugging, I would suggest a simple one line

You find CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG=y in production kernels as well.

Yes, but I would prefer a BUG_ON() one liner.
