Quite so. Sorry about that.

Throwing dyndbg="file <fname>.c +pf" onto the kernel command line is a
good start (+p enables debug level prints, +f causes messages to include
the function name).

When the C files map to module names (whether the modules are actually
built-in or not) then <module>.dyndbg=+pf is a bit cleaner and allows
you to debug the whole of a driver without how it is decomposed into

There are (many) other controls to play with[1] but the above should be
sufficient to simulate -DDEBUG .
