missed adding the local include path, resulting in compilation
failures with tracepoints:

In file included from drivers/vfio/pci/trace.h:102,
from drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci_nvlink2.c:29:
./include/trace/define_trace.h:89:42: fatal error: ./trace.h: No such file or directory

Fix this by adjusting the include path.

I'd still like to echo my sentiment that this should not be a def_bool.
We hit this error on our internal testing and we couldn't even turn
off the driver until we fixed this.

I assume there's some reason you can't commit a patch to your tree to
change it to bool, or turn it off entirely? That would change the SHA
which is perhaps reason enough.

In general we have far too many options and most of them never get
turned off (or on), so it just creates testing/bug surface for not much
benefit. This is one that will probably be turned on in all distro
kernels for example.

But I have no real objection to making it user configurable.

Alex I assume you'll merge this fix via the vfio tree?


Well now that everything is fixed, we will probably keep it on.
My gripe is that when things break like this it's difficult to
work around vs. the configuration option at least makes it possible
to work around in a fast way. This may also just be a strong
preference of mine for working around problems.
