This removes rather useful information and there is no replacement.

I have to say that dynamic debug interface always looked pretty
complicated to me. But I have no idea what the above means.

It explans some syntax. But it does not explain what filterfalgs
and modflags mean and how they would affect the operation.

Also some examples would be very useful.
