Description

Multiple different developers now have missed that the debug option in the loader menus
translates to -kd (load kmdb, stop at boot). We can probably word the menu entry better.

I built a USB with these changes, and verified the menus lined up fine, the toggling behaved properly, and it actually still made the changes to the way the kernel built.
