Hello, I am trying to create a debugfs file using the debugfs_create_file(...). I have written a sample code for this.

static int __init mmapexample_module_init(void)                                 
         file1 = debugfs_create_file("mmap_example", 0644, NULL, NULL, &my_fops)\
         printk(KERN_ALERT "Hello, World\n");                                    
             printk(KERN_ALERT "Error occured\n");                               
             printk(KERN_ALERT "ENODEV occured\n");                              
         return 0;                                                               

When i ran insmod i could get the Hello, World message but no the error message. So i think the debugfs_create_file worked fine. However i couldn't find any file in /sys/kernel/debug. The folder is there but it is empty. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you...

Thanks, Bala

I would try printing the value of file1, just to see what the function is returning.

I got it working... I need to mount the debugfs first and then call debugfs() call.
