trace_debug_layer
The temporary debug_layer used when tracing the method.

The temporary debug_level used when tracing the method.
Using 0x00ffffff by default if it is 0.

"enabled" means this feature is enabled
and the AML method is traced every time it's executed.

will only be traced during the next execution.

Users can enable/disable this debug tracing feature by
"echo string > /sys/module/acpi/parameters/trace_state".
