Will register a new event tag by name and format, and return an
event-log-tags format response with the newly allocated tag.
If format is not specified, then nothing will be recorded, but
a pre-existing named entry will be listed. If name and format are
not specified, list all dynamic entries. If name=* list all
event log tag entries.
Stickiness through logd crash will be managed with the tmpfs file
/dev/event-log-tags and through a reboot with add_tag entries in
the pmsg last logcat event log. On debug builds we retain a
/data/misc/logd/event-log-tags file that aids stickiness and that
can be picked up by the bugreport.
If we detect truncation damage to /dev/event-log-tags, or to
/data/misc/logd/event-log-tags, rebuild file with a new first line
signature incorporating the time so mmap'd readers of the file can
detect the possible change in shape and order.
Make sure nc (netcat) is built for the target platform on the host:
$ m nc
Then the following can be used to issue a request on the platform:
$ echo -n 'getEventTag name=<name> format="<format>"\0EXIT\0' |
> nc -U /dev/socket/logd
