when booted with arg: module.dyndbg=+p
dmesg gets volumes of info about loaded modules.
This adds module & symbol names, and sizes where pertinent.
Now I can know which module's info Im looking at.

Hi,

Could you please fix the changelog formatting according to
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst? More specifically,
complete sentences, line wrapped at 75 columns, and a Signed-off-by:
line at the end. There are plenty of examples if you look through the
lkml mailing list.

I would prefer "Absolute symbol %s:" rather than putting the symbol
name at the end.

it's a matter of taste.

Same here.

Let's capitalize the "f" in "final section addresses" to be consistent
with the other two above.

Any reason why you added sh_size here? Is it really needed? You can
usually deduce how much space a section is taking up in a module by
looking at the final section address printout. Plus the elf section
size is not entirely accurate here as each module section is aligned
to page boundaries when the module loader allocates memory for each
section. I would prefer to just leave it out.

Thanks,

Jessica
