I don't expect that automated testing can afford selectively enabling
DYNAMIC_DEBUG_BRANCH(id) conditions. But we could evaluate all arguments
by calling snprintf(NULL, 0) if the condition to call printk() is false.

I couldn't catch what you mean. The problem of pr_debug() is that
vprintk_store() might not be called because of

#define no_printk(fmt, ...) \
({ \
if (0) \
printk(fmt, ##__VA_ARGS__); \
0; \

#define pr_debug(fmt, ...) \
no_printk(KERN_DEBUG pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)


#define __dynamic_func_call(id, fmt, func, ...) do { \
func(&id, ##__VA_ARGS__); \
} while (0)

#define _dynamic_func_call(fmt, func, ...) \
__dynamic_func_call(__UNIQUE_ID(ddebug), fmt, func, ##__VA_ARGS__)

#define dynamic_pr_debug(fmt, ...) \
_dynamic_func_call(fmt, __dynamic_pr_debug, \
pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)

#define pr_debug(fmt, ...) \
dynamic_pr_debug(fmt, ##__VA_ARGS__)

. Maybe we can append

snprintf(NULL, 0, fmt, ##__VA_ARGS__); \

to no_printk() and __dynamic_func_call().
