Subject[PATCH 03/31] Dynamic Debug: Initialize dynamic debug earlier via arch_initcall
Date
From: Thomas Renninger <trenn@suse.de>

Having the ddebug_query= boot parameter it makes sense to set up
dynamic debug as soon as possible.

I expect sysfs files cannot be set up via an arch_initcall, because
this one is even before fs_initcall. Therefore I splitted the
dynamic_debug_init function into an early one and a later one providing
/sys/../dynamic_debug/control file.

Possibly dynamic_debug can be initialized even earlier, not sure whether
this still makes sense then. I picked up arch_initcall as it covers
quite a lot already.

Dynamic debug needs to allocate memory, therefore it's not easily possible to
set it up even before the command line gets parsed.
Therefore the boot param query string is stored in a temp string which is
applied when dynamic debug gets set up.

This has been tested with ddebug_query="file ec.c +p"
and I could retrieve pr_debug() messages early at boot during ACPI setup:
ACPI: EC: Look up EC in DSDT
ACPI: EC: ---> status = 0x08
ACPI: EC: transaction start
ACPI: EC: <--- command = 0x80
ACPI: EC: ~~~> interrupt
ACPI: EC: ---> status = 0x08
ACPI: EC: <--- data = 0xa4
...
ACPI: Interpreter enabled
ACPI: (supports S0 S3 S4 S5)
ACPI: Using IOAPIC for interrupt routing
ACPI: EC: ---> status = 0x00
ACPI: EC: transaction start
ACPI: EC: <--- command = 0x80
