This is a continuation of the discussion that we had when the initial debug 
support went in. At the time Christian and you thought that it would be ideal 
domu_debug were a domain-build / run-time option, as opposed to a xen 
compile-time option. For the sake of expediency I didn't do it at the time. 
patch was intended to rectify that. 

Having it perpetually as a compile-time option seems like making a ptrace a
compile-time option in Linux that defaulted to off.
