Hi Greg,

what is the canonic place to mount debugfs: /debug, /debugfs, or anything
else? The reason I'm asking is that USBMon has to find it somewhere and
I'd really hate to see it varying from distro to distro.

Hm, in my testing I've been putting it in /dbg, but I don't like vowels :)

Anyway, I don't really know. /dev/debug/ ? /proc/debug ? /debug ?

well, since there is already a /sys, /proc... /debug wouldn't be that bad. perhaps the /.debug is better to keep it simple and away from people's eyes.

pedro venda.
