I think it might be cleaner in general - we might as well check for
DEBUG_ICEDCC at compile time.

OK, I will send a tree inclusion request for linux-next.

I've compiled all of the defconfigs with these changes (plus the earlier
fixups). I get these failures:

$ grep failed test-configs.log 
ap4evb_defconfig: failed
bcmring_defconfig: failed
g3evm_defconfig: failed
g4evm_defconfig: failed
mx1_defconfig: failed
n8x0_defconfig: failed
nuc910_defconfig: failed
nuc950_defconfig: failed
nuc960_defconfig: failed

All except mx1 fail due to there being no debug-macros.S, so these
wouldn't work with DEBUG_LL regardless. mx1 fails due to the IO_ADDRESS
macro issues.
