Subject[PATCH 23/23] readahead: debug traces showing read patterns
Print all relavant read requests to help discover the access pattern.

If you are experiencing performance problems, or want to help improve
the read-ahead logic, please send me the trace data. Thanks.

- Preparations

# Compile kernel with option CONFIG_DEBUG_READAHEAD
mkdir /debug
mount -t debug none /debug

- For each session with distinct access pattern

echo > /debug/readahead # reset the counters
# echo > /var/log/kern.log # you may want to backup it first
echo 8 > /debug/readahead/debug_level # show verbose printk traces
# do one benchmark/task
echo 0 > /debug/readahead/debug_level # revert to normal value
cp /debug/readahead/events readahead-events-`date +'%F_%R'`
bzip2 -c /var/log/kern.log > kern.log-`date +'%F_%R'`.bz2
