Completely removing debug messages from the compiled binaries should be
selectable as a GRUB-wide configure-time switch, defaulting to _include_
such strings. Furthermore, removing the possibility of enabling debug
messages at runtime from certain modules (reiserfs) but not others
(ext4? vbe? drivemap?) will present the user with an non-uniform
interface - confusing and maybe frustrating.

In my opinion, there are better, wiser ways of reducing the size of
core.img, such as the new object format proposed by Bean, so unless
there is some kind of "emergency" like "some recent patch brought a
common pc+biosdisk+reiserfs core.img over the size limit", I don't think
this patch would be a good decision.
