To the best of my knowledge, none of the other popular distros enable
the level of debugging we do in the Fedora kernel.  There's a slightly dated
list detailing the extent of what we enable at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KernelDebugStrategy

We're also the only distro that leaves certain debug options enabled post-release.

You can see this by noting the lack of bug reports mentioning 'lockdep'
'slab debug' or other debug options on other distros bug trackers.
