I've committed a fix for this. I just realised that the test was only
required if you're using C++. Also removed some cruft that had collected
up in the file.

BTW, I've broken the cardinal rule by not actually compiling the fix.
I'm at a clients place, working on windows. So please use with caution
and revert if it breaks. I'm fairly sure it won't though.

A quick query:

To undefine a macro function which is preferable?

#define DBG(fmt, args)	      /* define it to nothing */


#define DBG(fmt, args) do {} while(0) /* define it to a no-op */

I usually use the first but I'm told the latter is common in the kernel.
