My current work-around is to get rid of the BR2_ENABLE_DEBUG
dependancy in the BR2_STRIP_xxxxx choices.

That way I can enable BR2_ENABLE_DEBUG and still have stripped
binaries on the target.

[I don't really understand why the two were connected like that, they
seem to me to be orthogonal choices.]
