	  task has ever had available in the sysrq-T and sysrq-P debug output.

	  This option will slow down process creation somewhat.

config HCALL_STATS
	bool "Hypervisor call instrumentation"
	depends on PPC_PSERIES && DEBUG_FS
	help
	  Adds code to keep track of the number of hypervisor calls made and
	  the amount of time spent in hypervisor callsr.  Wall time spent in
	  each call is always calculated, and if available CPU cycles spent
	  are also calculated.  A directory named hcall_inst is added at the
	  root of the debugfs filesystem.  Within the hcall_inst directory
	  are files that contain CPU specific call statistics.

	  This option will add a small amount of overhead to all hypervisor
	  calls.

	  Make sure to enable also CONFIG_BOOTX_TEXT on Macs. Otherwise
	  nothing will appear on the screen (xmon writes directly to the
	  framebuffer memory).
	  The cmdline option 'xmon' or 'xmon=early' will drop into xmon
	  very early during boot. 'xmon=on' will just enable the xmon
	  debugger hooks.  'xmon=off' will disable the debugger hooks
	  if CONFIG_XMON_DEFAULT is set.
91
92
	  xmon will print a backtrace on the very first invocation.
	  'xmon=nobt' will disable this autobacktrace.
