Just in case this was not obvious, "KERNEL" there is meta-linguistic.
Yours might be in GENERIC, MYKERNEL, etc. -- the same place where
you built the currently-running kernel.  If you're running the
original CD-installed kernel, I suppose the corresponding place
would be GENERIC (but I don't know offhand whether the standard
install includes GENERIC/kernel.debug -- if not, perhaps it should).

The code and data are the same, but 'kernel.debug' also contains
debugging records (symbols, source line references, etc).
