RFC - KBUILD_MODNAME is misleading in builtins, as seen in /proc/dynamic_debug/control

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


dynamic-debug METADATA uses KBUILD_MODNAME as:

#define DEFINE_DYNAMIC_DEBUG_METADATA_CLS(name, cls, fmt)       \
        static struct _ddebug  __aligned(8)                     \
        __section("__dyndbg") name = {                          \
                .modname = KBUILD_MODNAME,                      \

This is going amiss for some builtins, ie those enabled here, by:

    echo module main +pmf > /proc/dynamic_debug_control
    grep =pmf /proc/dynamic_debug/control

Basically, KBUILD_MODNAME appears to get basename,
not something specific, set in some config (such as pm, or module)
or cleverly picked out of the path (power is possible)

this compromises the clarity of  dyndbg's module keyword

is some heuristic possible to improve this,
with a manual setting to fix when heuristic fails ?
