at first i want to thank you for the work on vchiq so far.

There is something which is not directly related to this series, but it
is also about debugging. The driver has a buffer which is accessed by
it's own DEBUG_* macros. The content of this debug buffer can be dumped
via the /dev/vchiq which is also used by ioctl. I would appreciate to
move this dump feature into a new debugfs entry.

Best regards
