Guys, JFYI, we are getting rid of LOG_NONL and indent in logger as non multi-thread safe (we are moving towards multi threaded eventloop):

Hmm, __kfuse_trace() duplicates message to debugfs trace, without '\n'

Yes, and AFAIS most of the existing messages already come w/o it.

More likely logs without '\n' are present mainly for error cases,
perhaps this is why it wasn't noticed before. But yes, we have a mess
with logs.

I propose to fix all FUSE_K* traces with '\n' and use
trace_printk("%s\n") for duplicating messages to debugsfs. But
duplicating messages to debugfs should be turned off by default (with
the ability to enable via sysfs), because write messages to debugfs
without user's permission.. it's looks a little impolite :)

The issue is not in duplicating messages, but in \n creeping into
user-space logs. But anyway, OK, equipping them all with \n-s sounds
OK to me.

Not any more. Please, look at this PR:
The proposal is to drop the LOG_NONL thing from textual logs. If done, then
messages coming with \n at the end will have double \n-s in text logs.

Actually, we don't need to worry about merged messages in debugs,
because __trace_puts() adds \n if it necessary:
int __trace_puts(unsigned long ip, const char *str, int size)
/* Add a newline if necessary */
if (entry->buf[size - 1] != '\n') {
entry->buf[size] = '\n';
entry->buf[size + 1] = '\0';
} else
entry->buf[size] = '\0';

I missed it in the beginning, sorry for that.

Along with this, we can allow drop LOG_NONL options from usermode and
this patch is OK for me, except for a small correction:
void __kfuse_trace(struct fuse_conn * fc, unsigned long ip, const char *
fmt, ...)
- pr_debug("%s", buf);
+ pr_debug("%s\n", buf);

this messages will look weird. We need to fix __kfuse_trace() by adding
concatenation '\n' (or even drop duplication messages to debugsfs/dmesg,
as not a very useful thing).

Would you like to fix all FUSE_KTRACE's in the kernel? I see a few more
FUSE_KTRACE with '\n'.

After a recent (b)log (re)work it was noticed that some extra \n-s crept
into the classical log files. Indeed, the pstorage TRACE() call appends a
\n at the end of each message and so does the kernel code.

Sorry for inconvenience.
