Subject: [PATCH 0/11] dynamic_debug: allow multiple pending queries on boot-line
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 28th June 2011 07:09:41 UTC (over 5 years ago)
This patchset extends dynamic-debug facility to allow 
use of pr_debug() within a loadable module's module_init() 
function.  Query/rules can be given on the boot-line,
and are saved to a pending list if they cannot be applied
immediately.  Later, when the module is being loaded, the
pending list is scanned, and matching rules are applied.
Thus pr_debug() calls in the module's initialization function
are active when it is invoked.

Other features:
- dynamic_debug.verbose=1 at boot-time or while running
- ddebug_query can specify multiple queries, separated by ';'
- warn on multiple uses of a single match-spec in single query
- tolerate bad queries in ddebug_query w/o taking down facility

Possible additions (not done now)

- /dynamic_debug/pending
  to show pending query/rules

- scan existing pending list before adding new entry
  currently same rule can be appended multiple times

- persistent queries
  when module is unloaded, applied rules are deleted
