That's true. But is DEBUG_KERNEL hurting you. You can disable all other
debug options under DEBUG_KERNEL and only enable DEBUG_INFO.

Logically it makes sense to put all kernel debug features under KERNEL_DEBUG.
Though DEBUG_INFO probably can be brought out. But is there huge piece
of code under DEBUG_KERNEL which is a problem for you?
