BUG(), BUG_ON(), WARN_ON(), etc. are generally used to test a condition
that should never happen.  If it does, it is a bug, then they print
noisy messages.

They are useful to catch bugs, and Linux always enables them, but doing
so in U-Boot causes image size problems on some platforms.

Introduce CONFIG_BUG_CHECKS to switch this feature.  It is enabled by
default since it is the current behavior.  Disable it if your platform
needs to save memory footprint.

Changes in v3:
  - Flip the default to 'y'
    because I thought "ENABLE" was not a necessary word
  - define to "do {} while (0)"

Changes in v2:
  - Newly added
