BROKEN says that what is selected by the cofig option
is broken.
This is not the case for DEBUG_SECTION_MISMATCH which is

BROKEN is our pattern for "intentionally disabled".

I did really grep for UNDEFINED when I first saw it since it might as 
well have been some kind of CONFIG_UNDEFINED "warn about undefined foobar".
