Subject[PATCH 1/4] Dynamic Debug: Introduce global fake module param module.ddebug - V3
Date
Dynamic Debug allows enabling of pr_debug and dev_dbg messages at runtime.
This is controlled via /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control.
One major drawback is that the whole initialization of a module cannot be
tracked, because ddebug is only aware of debug strings of loaded modules.
But this is the most interesting part...

This patch introduces a fake module parameter module.ddebug(not shown in
/sys/module/*/parameters, thus it does not use any resources/memory).
If a module passes ddebug as a module parameter (e.g. via module.ddebug
kernel boot param or via "modprobe module ddebug"), all debug strings of this
module get activated by issuing "module module_name +p" internally
(not via sysfs) when the module gets loaded.

Possible enhancements for the future if ddebug might get extended with
further flags:
module.ddebug=flags
Then module.ddebug="p" would be the same as module.ddebug, but if there
is a "x" ddebug flag added, one could pass:
module.ddebug="xp"
which would result in such a dynamic debug query:
module module_name +xp

Modules must not use "ddebug" as module parameter or it will get ignored.
If it's tried, a warning will show up at module load time that it will get
ignored (only works for not built-in modules).

Tested with (additional added pr_debug messages):
options hp-wmi ddebug
in modprobe.conf
-> works and pr_debug messages issued at module initialization time show
up. Also "p" flag gets set for the whole hp-wmi module:
grep hp-wmi /sys/../dynamic_debug/control
also tested with compiled-in modules, e.g. pnp.ddebug and an additional
patch later in the patch series which instruments pnp code to work with ddebug.

+Debug Messages at Module Initialization Time
+============================================
+
+Enabling debug messages inside a module is only possible if the module itself
+is loaded already. If you unload a module, the dynamic debug flags associated
+to its debug messages are lost.
+Therefore, enabling debug messages that get processed at module initialization
+time through the <debugfs>/dynamic_debug/control interface is not possible.
+Instead, a "ddebug" module paramter can be passed:
+
+ - via kernel boot parameter:
+ module.ddebug
+
+ - as an ordinary module parameter via modprobe
+ modprobe module ddebug
+
+ - or the parameter can be used permanently via modprobe.conf(.local)
+ options module ddebug
+
+The ddebug option is not implemented as an ordinary module parameter and thus
+will not show up in /sys/module/module_name/parameters/ddebug
+The settings can get reverted through the sysfs interface again when the
+module got loaded as soon as debug messages are not needed anymore:
+echo "module module_name -p" > <debugfs>/dynamic_debug/control
+as described in the "Command Language Reference" chapter above.
