I don't see the value for such a global config option possibly switching so many different drivers to debug mode. In reality you want to do something like "debug" for a single driver only during time of development. This won't need a global config option but just a "#define" in the driver which is active while developing and testing and which should be removed or commented out when the final submission of the driver is done.
This Kconfig was suggested in the context of . The number of people working on swiotlb is very limited, but the check added is really useful in debug build to catch potential misuse for anyone.
Do you have any other idea to turn this check on for debug build?? Cheers,  https://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2017-01/msg03448.html -- Julien Grall _______________________________________________ Xen-devel mailing list Xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx https://lists.xen.org/xen-devel
