Subject[PATCH 07/10] dynamic debug: resurrect old pr_debug() semantics as pr_devel()
Date
From: Michael Ellerman <michael@ellerman.id.au>

pr_debug() used to produce zero code unless DEBUG was #defined. This is
now no longer the case in practice[1].

There are places where it's useful to have debugging printks, but we don't
want them to generate any code in production kernels.

So add a new macro, pr_devel(), for _devel_opment, to provide the old
semantics, ie. if the programmer doesn't explicitly enable debugging, no
code is produced.

[1]: You can turn CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG off, but it's enabled in at least
one distro kernel, so it's not really a solution.
