Subject[PATCH 07/16] dynamic_debug: make dynamic-debug work for module initialization
Date
From: Jim Cromie <jim.cromie@gmail.com>

This introduces a fake module param $module.dyndbg. Its based upon
Thomas Renninger's $module.ddebug boot-time debugging patch from
https://lkml.org/lkml/2010/9/15/397

The 'fake' module parameter is provided for all modules, whether or
not they need it. It is not explicitly added to each module, but is
implemented in callbacks invoked from parse_args.

For builtin modules, dynamic_debug_init() now directly calls
parse_args(..., &ddebug_dyndbg_boot_params_cb), to process the params
undeclared in the modules, just after the ddebug tables are processed.
While its slightly weird to reprocess the boot params, the dyndbg
queries (given in dyndbg params) cannot be activated until after the
ddebug tables are ready, and reusing parse_args is cleaner than an
ad-hoc parse. This reparse would break options like inc_verbosity,
but they probably should be params, like verbosity=3.

ddebug_dyndbg_boot_params_cb() handles both bare dyndbg (formerly
ddebug_query) and module-prefixed dyndbg params, and ignores all other
parameters. For example, the following will enable pr_debug()s in 4
builtin modules, in the order given:

dyndbg="module params +p; module aio +p" module.dyndbg=+p pci.dyndbg

With ddebug_query changed to dyndbg, we also deprecate "ddebug_query".
The code handling it will be removed later. For now, both are active.

For loadable modules, parse_args() in load_module() calls
ddebug_dyndbg_module_params_cb(). This handles bare dyndbg params as
passed from modprobe, and errors on other unknown params.

Note that modprobe reads /proc/cmdline, so "modprobe foo" grabs all
foo.params, strips the "foo.", and passes these to the kernel.
ddebug_dyndbg_module_params_cb() is again called for the unknown
params; it handles dyndbg, and errors on others. The "doing" arg
added previously contains the module name.

For non CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG builds, the stub function accepts
and ignores $module.dyndbg params, other unknowns get -ENOENT.

If no param value is given (as in pci.dyndbg example above), "+p" is
assumed, which enables all pr_debug callsites in the module.

The dyndbg fake parameter is not shown in /sys/module/*/parameters,
thus it does not use any resources. Changes to it are made via the
control file.
