Hm I'm not super sure tracepoints for state dumping are the right thing
here. We kinda have the atomic state dumping code with all the various
callbacks, and you can extend that pretty easily. Gives you full state
dump in debugfs, plus a few function to dump into dmesg.

Maybe what we need is a function to dump this also into printk tracepoint
(otoh with Sean Paul's tracepoint work we'd get that through the dmesg
stuff already), and then you could do it there?

Upside is that for customers they'd get a much more consistent way to
debug display issues across different drivers.

For low-level hw debug what we do is give the hw guys an mmio trace, and
they replay it on the fancy boxes :-) So for that I think this here is
again too high level, but maybe what you have is a bit different.
