Subject[PATCH v3 0/9] hacking: make 'kernel hacking' menu better structurized
Date
This series is a trivial improvment for the layout of 'kernel hacking'
configuration menu. Now we have many items in it which makes takes
a little time to look up them since they are not well structurized yet.

Early discussion is here:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/9/1/39

This is a preview:

│ ┌─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┐ │
│ │ printk and dmesg options ---> │ │
│ │ Compile-time checks and compiler options ---> │ │
│ │ Generic Kernel Debugging Instruments ---> │ │
│ │ -*- Kernel debugging │ │
│ │ [*] Miscellaneous debug code │ │
│ │ Memory Debugging ---> │ │
│ │ [ ] Debug shared IRQ handlers │ │
│ │ Debug Oops, Lockups and Hangs ---> │ │
│ │ Scheduler Debugging ---> │ │
│ │ [*] Enable extra timekeeping sanity checking │ │
│ │ Lock Debugging (spinlocks, mutexes, etc...) ---> │ │
│ │ -*- Stack backtrace support │ │
│ │ [ ] Warn for all uses of unseeded randomness │ │
│ │ [ ] kobject debugging │ │
│ │ Debug kernel data structures ---> │ │
│ │ [ ] Debug credential management │ │
│ │ RCU Debugging ---> │ │
│ │ [ ] Force round-robin CPU selection for unbound work items │ │
│ │ [ ] Force extended block device numbers and spread them │ │
│ │ [ ] Enable CPU hotplug state control │ │
│ │ [*] Latency measuring infrastructure │ │
│ │ [*] Tracers ---> │ │
│ │ [ ] Remote debugging over FireWire early on boot │ │
│ │ [*] Sample kernel code ---> │ │

v3:
o change subject prefix.
v2:
o rebase to linux-next.
o move DEBUG_FS to 'Generic Kernel Debugging Instruments'
o move DEBUG_NOTIFIERS to 'Debug kernel data structures'

Changbin Du (9):
hacking: Group sysrq/kgdb/ubsan into 'Generic Kernel Debugging
Instruments'
hacking: Create submenu for arch special debugging options
hacking: Group kernel data structures debugging together
hacking: Move kernel testing and coverage options to same submenu
hacking: Move Oops into 'Lockups and Hangs'
hacking: Move SCHED_STACK_END_CHECK after DEBUG_STACK_USAGE
hacking: Create a submenu for scheduler debugging options
hacking: Move DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE to 'printk and dmesg options'
hacking: Move DEBUG_FS to 'Generic Kernel Debugging Instruments'
