So, this is the end result:

- if (ret == -ENOENT || ret == -EINVAL)
- pr_err("Failed to find the location of %s at this address.\n"
- " Perhaps, it has been optimized out.\n", pf->pvar->var);
- else if (ret == -ENOTSUP)
+ if (ret == -ENOENT || ret == -EINVAL) {
+ pr_err("Failed to find the location of the '%s' variable at this address.\n"
+ " Perhaps it has been optimized out.\n"
+ " Use -V with the --range option to show '%s' location range.\n",
+ pf->pvar->var, pf->pvar->var);
+ } else if (ret == -ENOTSUP)
