deviceemu wish

Would it be possible to specify that one kernel should run in “release” mode and the second kernel will run in “deviceemu” ?
I have 3 kernels running one after the other, if I want to debug the third one I need to pass the first two and that takes tons of time.
If I could tell the compiler to run the first two kernels in release mode and only the third one in emulation that would help a lot.
