Subject[PATCH 2/2] scripts: leaking_addresses: help screen updates
From
Date
The current leaking_addresses.pl script only supports showing "leaked"
64-bit kernel virtual addresses. This patch modifies the "help" screen in the
following manner:
- the '--raw', '--suppress-dmesg', '--squash-by-path' and '--squash-by-filename'
option switches are only meaningful when the '--input-raw=' option switch is
used. So, indent the 'Help' screen lines to reflect the fact.
- an additional example demonstrating usage of the new '--page-offset'
parameter.


Feedback welcome..
