kdb: Implement seq_file commanddev/kdb-interrupt
Combining the kdb seq_file infrastructure with its symbolic lookups allows a good sub-set of files held in pseudo filesystems to be displayed by kdb. The seq_file command does exactly this and allows a significant subset of pseudo files to be safely examined whilst debugging (and in the hands of a brave expert an even bigger subset can be unsafely examined). Good arguments to try with this command include: cpuinfo_op, gpiolib_seq_ops and vmalloc_op. Signed-off-by: Daniel Thompson <daniel.thompson@linaro.org>
