'=' and '?=' are the same in the sense that
the right-hand side is evaluated when it is used.

Sorry, I do not like to duplicate the code.



I do not understand why you need to test such complicated
compiler flags in order to negate CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO.


I am still wondering,
but if this is really worth doing in upstream code,
I think the following is a simpler idea.
