      Description

      For security reasons /sys/kernel/debug is restrict to root only so by relocating /proc/fs/lustre/ost & mdt to /sys/kenrnel/debug/lustre breaks many tools such as 'performance co pilot" that run as non-privilege users. We rely on such tools to collect lustre metric.

      We could change the permissions on /sys/kernel/debug but that is not good security practice. Can there be a build option to selected the location?
