Hello Andrew,

There has not been any further comments on the previous version (V9) or this version
(V10) of the patch which accommodated a comment from Ingo Molnar regarding making
DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE always enabled when DEBUG_VM is selected. If this version looks okay,
then would you please consider merging ? But if there is anything which still needs
to be improved, please do let me know. I will try to incorporate that. Thank you.
