DMESG does not display the kernel driver function PRINTK message
Kernel driver function was called via ioctl and returned success, but when I checked the kernel display buffer with dmesg the printk message was not there. Then when you do lsmod, the driver you were calling showed "used by zero". So it seems like the kernel driver was not accessed. In the kernel driver, I had many printk statements, but nothing printed in the buffer.
Can anyone tell me if the driver get accessed and what could cause this?
