parenttipc: Prune down link-specific debugging code (diff)
tipc: Finish streamlining of debugging code
Completes the simplification of TIPC's debugging capabilities. By default TIPC includes no debugging code, and any debugging code added by developers that calls the dbg() and dbg_macros() is compiled out. If debugging support is enabled, TIPC prints out some additional data about its internal state when certain abnormal conditions occur, and any developer-added calls to the TIPC debug macros are compiled in.
