How about adding just a simple non-visible config symbol:


The nice help text can be added to the H file, and the select
can be move to the sparc/Kconfig file where it really belongs.
Yes, this should not be user selectable. I don't mind the help being
here though.
How about this?
Moved everything to arch/sparc/Kconfig.debug. It may be not useful to have help in
config file as it is not visible. Lets have some explanation in .h file.
I will send v3 version if you all agree.
