I did it this way for two reasons: in general samba code is well modularized
along file boundaries, and I was trying hard to make as few changes to
existing code. There are also several extended DEBUG macro's to allow

Actually, it should result in one extra lookup and test per DEBUG. As I
recall, it added three instructions per DEBUG on the Intel architecture,
but my memory is fuzzy on this.
