Subject: [PATCH 23/26] tools lib fs debugfs: Check if debugfs is mounted when handling ENOENT
Date: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 14:47:26 -0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1422294449-12735-24-git-send-email-acme@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1422294449-12735-1-git-send-email-acme@kernel.org>

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

If debugfs was already mounted, then its a matter of not finding the
tracepoint, tell the user that perhaps a CONFIG_ setting is not enabled.
