Series applies to v5.3-rc7. Has some problems applying to linux-next.

Under 'Compile-time checks and compiler options', "Debug Filesystem" does not belong here.
Maybe move it under 'Generic Kernel Debugging Instruments'.

I mostly like it. I might have put 'Debug notifier call chains' under
'Debug kernel data structures', but that's not a big deal.
