Add a new witness sysctl which returns the relations between any lock
and its children in the form:
so that head and bottom of an oriented graph can be easilly detected and
various form of diagrams can be build.
The sysctl is called debug.witness.graphs and it is read-only; in order
to get the list of relations, a simple:
will do the trick.
This approach has been choosen in order to support easilly things like
the DOT format and such. Soon, an auto-explicative awk script, which
filters simple informations returned by the sysctl and converts them into
a real DOT script, will be committed to the repository between examples.
