This doesn't change the "debug-only"-ness of the option.

Observe in the first hunk to hvm.h that opt_hvm_fep is defined to 0 in a
non-debug build, which causes this hunk to be omitted.

This actually matches the original introduction of opt_hvm_fep, before
it was reduced in scope to only hvm.c.  I now need it available again in
other translation units.
