[linux-kvm-x][PATCHv2] enable CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA

== Justification ==
In Xenial KVM kernel, the CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL is enabled, security team would like to see CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA to be enabled as well.

== Test ==
Before enabling the config the test_072_config_debug_rodata test from qa-regression-testing will fail. After that, the test will pass.
A test kernel with CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA enabled in Xenial KVM could be found here:

== Fix ==
Some other configs were enabled just for skipping the interaction during the compilation.

== Regression Potential ==
No code changes, just one config enabled without disabling any other configs.
