You have probably enabled unnecessary kernel debug options.

What does the following command say?
$ grep -E '(DEBUG|EVBUG)' /usr/src/linux-<YOUR_KERNEL_VERSION>/.config

For me it shows about 30 lines with options, every one being "not set"
like this one:
# CONFIG_PM_DEBUG is not set

If you see anything like this
CONFIG_INPUT_EVBUG=y
that means you should reconfigure the kernel to disable kernel
debugging.
