#54832: _doing_it_wrong should write into debug.log

 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  REST API      |    Version:  5.8.3
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:

 I was created a plugin that called to `register_rest_route()` without
 `permission_callback` argument. It worked fine until WordPress 5.5 that
 this argument is now required.

 However, the errors is not appears anywhere except in the REST API headers
 but it is very hard to notice about that.

 I keep using the old code because I didn't know about this change as it is
 not showing in the debug.log.
 Until one day that WordPress 5.8 released and I was entered to the new
 widget management and BOOM!
 All errors appears on the debug.log now.

 This function (`_doing_it_wring()`) is useful and **should** write the
 details into debug.log file no matter where it is called.


 add_action('rest_api_init', 'myplugin_register_routes');
 function myplugin_register_routes()
     register_rest_route('myplugin', '/allitems', [
         'args' => [
             'mycustom' => 'args',
         'methods' => \WP_REST_Server::READABLE,
         'callback' => 'myplugin_get_items_function',
         // 'permission_callback' => 'is_missing',// should always showing
 error in debug.log
