The changed sched_feat(y) line is fine but I do not get/like the 
of the ifdef - keeping the change minimal is ok if there is a
relevant impact but here there is no effective difference (you write
the object code is the same for the !CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG case)
So I think the ifdef should be kicked here and the proposed change
seems fine to me.
