Subject[PATCH 14/18] dyndbg: add user-flag, negating-flags, and filtering on flags
Date
1. Add a user-flag [u] which works like original [pfmlt] flags, but
has no effect on callsite behavior; it allows marking of arbitrary
sets of callsites.

2. Add [PFMLTU] flags, which negate their counterparts; P===!p etc.
And in ddebug_read_flags():
current code does: [pfmltu_] -> flags
copy it to: [PFMLTU_] -> mask

also disallow both of a pair: ie no 'pP', no true & false.

3. Add filtering ops into ddebug_change(), right after all the
callsite-property selections are complete. These test the callsite's
current flagstate before applying modflags.

Why ?

The new user flag facilitates batching of changes. By marking
individual callsites with 'u', user can compose an arbitrary set of
changes, then activate them together by selecting on 'u':

#> echo 'file foo.c +u; file bar.c +u' > control
#> echo 'u+p' > control

The user flag isn't strictly needed, but with it you can avoid using
[fmlt] flags for marking, which would alter logging when enabled.

-For ``print_hex_dump_debug()`` and ``print_hex_dump_bytes()``, only ``p`` flag
-have meaning, other flags ignored.
+Additionally, the flag-chars ``[pflmtu]`` have negating flag-chars
+``[PFMLTU]``, which invert the meanings above. Their use follows.
+
+Using Filters::
+
+Filter-flags specify an optional additional selector on pr_debug
+callsites; with them you can compose an arbitrary set of callsites, by
+iteratively marking them with ``+u``, then enabling them all with
+``u+p``. You can also use ``fmlt`` flags for this, unless the format
+changes are inconvenient.
+
+Filters can also contain the negating flags, like ``UF``, which select
+only callsites with ``u`` and ``f`` cleared.
+
+Flagsets cannot contain ``pP`` etc, a flag cannot be true and false.
+
+modflags containing upper-case flags is reserved/undefined for now.
+inverted-flags are currently ignored, usage gets trickier if given
+``-pXy``, it should leave x set.
+
+Notes::
+
+For ``print_hex_dump_debug()`` and ``print_hex_dump_bytes()``, only
+``p`` flag has meaning, other flags are ignored.

For display, the flags are preceded by ``=``
(mnemonic: what the flags are currently equal to).

-Note the regexp ``^[-+=][flmpt_]+$`` matches a flags specification.
-To clear all flags at once, use ``=_`` or ``-flmpt``.
+Note the regexp ``^[-+=][flmptu_]+$`` matches a flags specification.
