I am not very informed on kernel stuff so I could be wrong here...

This seems a good idea for a what seems a minor(?) increase in security, 
but at the expense of making debugging kernel issues more difficult.  I 
guess the people who want to attach gdb and debug the kernel are 
probably building their own from upstream git anyway, so I lean slightly 
on the side of enabling it.
