1) it's not part of originating Windows headers (if these are used as part
of RTL definitions) - keep the base header as small as possible.
2) The flag itself is very debugging specific. Thus the declaration should
go with either separate debugging package or more specific CPU definition
header (not necessarily debugging related).

The idea here is to be as "component" as possible, rather than put
everything into a single ready for anything RTL (that would bloat it a lot).
