Paolo Bonzini - May 10, 2013, 12:16 p.m.
Cast debugging can have a substantial cost (20% or more).  Instead of adding
special-cased "fast casts" in the hot paths, we can just disable it in
releases.  The tracing facilities we just added make it easier to analyze
those problems that cast debugging would reveal.
