Default config-2.6.22-14-generic: CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y, really?

Yes, it is the case. Before the non-debug linux-image debs are
generated, the symbols are stripped. See here[0], specifically:

find /build/buildd/linux-source-2.6.22-2.6.22/debian/linux-image-2.6.22-14-386/ -name *.ko -print | xargs strip --strip-debug
