SubjectRe: [lustre-devel] [PATCH 1/6] staging: lustre: move stack-check macros to libcfs_debug.h

In fact, I think it would be harmful, and we shouldn't open up the possibility - this is switchable debug with very low overhead when not actually "on". It would be really awful to get a problem on a running system and discover there's no debug support - that you can't even enable debug without a reinstall.

(I know it's a choice they'd have to make, but if it's not really useful with a side order of potentially harmful, we shouldn't even give people the choice.)

I'm not saying add the option today but this is more for the long game.
While the Intel lustre developers deeply love lustre's debugging
infrastructure I see a future where something better will come along to
replace it. When that day comes we will have a period where both
debugging infrastructurs will exist and some deployers of lustre will
want to turn off the old debugging infrastructure and just use the new.
That is what I have in mind. A switch to flip between options.
