This field (debug) is unused. Furthermore it looks like a result
of rtmutex from -rt into upstream, where it serves to determine
if the wakeup is for a task blocked on a "sleeping spinlock",
iow if this is a regular rt_mutex_lock() or rt_spin_lock().

Of course, upstream we only have regular rt_mutexes, thus we
can safely assume nothing will be done with this field anyway.
There is also the fact that this is under debug.
