One part is an obvious fix, the other a refactoring under discussion.

That's because the CONFIG_XENO_OPT_DEBUG_NUCLEUS defines were misplaced.
Besides that we had one CONFIG_XENO_OPT_DEBUG_QUEUE duplicate, but tons
of proper users. I don't see such an immediate need.

When adding this kind of switching, it's till more handy to have things
locally in your subsystem. That also makes reviewing easier when you
only find changes in files that belong to a subsystem.

What did you change to make this happen (for new users of XENO_DEBUG)?
