Thank you for the tests! :D

The plan is to freeze DAMON debugfs interface after DAMON sysfs interface is
merged, and then entirely remove it after next LTS kernel. It was mentioned in
the sysfs interface patchset as below:

Future Plan of DAMON_DBGFS Deprecation

Once this patchset is merged, DAMON_DBGFS development will be frozen. That is,
we will maintain it to work as is now so that no users will be break. But, it
will not be extended to provide any new feature of DAMON. The support will be
continued only until next LTS release. After that, we will drop DAMON_DBGFS.

The plan was also shared in the kernel doc as below[1], but maybe it was too
small to read, or ambiguous. Sorry if it was the case.

debugfs interface. This is almost identical to sysfs interface. This will
be _removed_ after next LTS kernel is released, so users should move to the
sysfs interface.


So, I don't have a big interest at extending DAMON debugfs for fvaddr. That
said, of course we could discuss more if you really need it. If so, please let
me know.
