Subject[PATCH v4 00/16] dynamic-debug cleanups, 2 new features
changes from v3:
drop name change, at best it was not fully considered
microoptimization LIFO ddebug_tables list.
drop doc example comment changes.
use -v4 in format-patch

changes from v2:
only claim one user flag, dont really need more
fix patchset grooming err Reported-by: kbuild test robot <>
quoting tweaks in Docs
rename to lib/dyndbg.c, update docs accordingly

changes from v1:
dont drop trim_prefix yet, its harmless, and better supports old compilers.
dont move externs to header, despite checkpatch


New Features (review):

accept new query input:
file inode.c:100-200 # & line-range
file inode.c:start_* # & function

add 'u' user flag, allowing user to compose an arbitrary set of
callsites by marking them with 'u', without altering current
print-modifying flags.

extend flags-spec to accept filter-flags before OP and mod-flags,
which select callsites for modification based upon their current
flags. This lets user activate the set of callsites composed
previously (u+p).

add negating flags to filter on absence of flags, or to negate a modification.

dyndbg-docs: eschew file /full/path query in docs
dyndbg: drop obsolete comment on ddebug_proc_open

dyndbg: combine flags & mask into a struct, use that
dyndbg: add filter parameter to ddebug_parse_flags
dyndbg: extend ddebug_parse_flags to accept optional filter-flags
dyndbg: prefer declarative init in caller, to memset in callee
dyndbg: add user-flag, negating-flags, and filtering on flags
dyndbg: allow negating flag-chars in modflags
dyndbg: make ddebug_tables list LIFO for add/remove_module
