Subject[RFC][PATCH] ACPI: tracing: Have ACPI debug go to tracing ring buffer
From: "Steven Rostedt (Google)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

While debugging some firmware that was taking a bit of time to initialize,
I enabled ACPI_DEBUG and added a bit too much info to the debug_layer and
debug_level acpi command line options, and it made the computer not be
able to boot (too much info! or too much printk).

I decided that this would be easier to handle if the acpi output was
written instead into the trace buffer. This also has the added benefit of
adding other trace events and seeing how ACPI interacts with the rest of
the system.

Ideally, the ACPI trace should have proper trace events where data can be
stored more efficiently and be filtered and parsed better. But for now,
just writing the debug string into the buffer will suffice. This makes it
possible to enable all ACPI output (setting triggers on other events to
stop tracing, to not lose the data you are looking for).

Even with all APCI debugging enable, the system continues to run perfectly
fine.
