That's why I said in my initial mail:

Does dynamic debug offer an "is the message two lines below enabled" test?

What I meant is that dbg_port() could test if it
needs to call dbg_port_buf() for this call site.


Anyway, maybe the dbg_*_buf() are not called often enough to worry?

If you're OK with "#if defined(DEBUG) || defined(CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG)"
then maybe you should just do that?

Thanks
