Subject[PATCH 08/10] x86-64: select DYNAMIC_DEBUG_RELATIVE_POINTERS
Date
This reduces the size of struct _ddebug from 56 to 40 bytes. There's
one such struct for each pr_debug(), netdev_debug() etc. in a
CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG kernel. An Ubuntu 4.15 kernel has about 2550
entries in the __verbose section of vmlinux, amounting to ~40K
saved. (Modules also become smaller, but it's harder to quantify how
much that yields at runtime.)

For comparison, the __bug_table section of that Ubuntu kernel is 75576
bytes, i.e. 6298 12-byte bug_entrys, so GENERIC_BUG_RELATIVE_POINTERS
saves ~50K.

Due to the build-time sanity checks in asm-generic/dynamic_debug.h, we
need to add another #undef to vclock_gettime.c.
