SubjectRe: [PATCH] configs/debug: set CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y properly

What do you mean by "can't be set by user directly"? DEBUG_INFO
is fully controlable via menuconfig.

Does this change actually work in the kernels it has merged into?

DEBUG_INFO_DWARF_TOOLCHAIN_DEFAULT existence is predicated on DEBUG_INFO
being set. It makes no sense at all to set the former without the later.

I tried this with ARCH=arm64 and it is clearly not working and should
probably be reverted from v5.17:
~~~
maple$ git describe
v5.17-rc7
maple$ make defconfig
*** Default configuration is based on 'defconfig'
#
# No change to .config
#
maple$ scripts/config --disable DEBUG_INFO && make oldconfig
#
# configuration written to .config
#
maple$ grep DEBUG_INFO .config
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is not set
maple$ make debug.config
<removed-long-output-here>
maple$ grep DEBUG_INFO .config
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is not set
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
^^^^^^^^^
^
maple$ echo CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y kernel/configs/debug_info.config
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y kernel/configs/debug_info.config
maple$ make debug_info.config
Using .config as base
Merging ./kernel/configs/debug_info.config
Value of CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is redefined by fragment ./kernel/configs/debug_info.config:
Previous value: # CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is not set
New value: CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y

#
# merged configuration written to .config (needs make)
#
#
# configuration written to .config
#
maple$ grep DEBUG_INFO .config
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_REDUCED is not set
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_COMPRESSED is not set
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_SPLIT is not set
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF_TOOLCHAIN_DEFAULT=y
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF4 is not set
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF5 is not set
~~~
