config EARLY_PRINTK
	def_bool DEBUG_OCD
	help
	  Write kernel log output directly into the ocd or to a serial port.

	  This is useful for kernel debugging when your machine crashes very
	  early before the console code is initialized. For normal operation
	  it is not recommended because it looks ugly and doesn't cooperate
	  with klogd/syslogd or the X server. You should normally N here,
	  unless you want to debug such a crash.

# These options are only for real kernel hackers who want to get their hands dirty.
config DEBUG_LL
	bool "Kernel low-level debugging functions"
	depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
	help
	  Say Y here to include definitions of printascii, printch, printhex
	  in the kernel.  This is helpful if you are debugging code that
	  executes before the console is initialized.

config DEBUG_OCD
	bool "Kernel low-level debugging via On-Chip-Debugger"
	depends on DEBUG_LL
	default y
	help
	  Say Y here if you want the debug print routines to direct their
	  output to the UniCore On-Chip-Debugger channel using CP #1.
