Gmane
From: Johannes Berg <johannes <at> sipsolutions.net>
Subject: [PATCH v2] tracing: add trace console
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 16th November 2011 15:09:58 UTC (over 5 years ago)
From: Johannes Berg <[email protected]>

As described in the Kconfig entry, logging printk
output is useful to correlate (existing) printk
debugging with (existing) tracing. The easiest way
to achieve this is to register a console that just
calls trace_printk(), which this module does.
