Subject[PATCH] Support resetting WARN*_ONCE
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

I like _ONCE warnings because it's guaranteed that they don't
flood the log.

During testing I find it useful to reset the state of the once warnings,
so that I can rerun tests and see if they trigger again, or can
guarantee that a test run always hits the same warnings.

This patch adds a debugfs interface to reset all the _ONCE
warnings so that they appear again:

echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/clear_warn_once

This is implemented by putting all the warning booleans into
a special section, and clearing it.
