I think there is some disconnect here. I'm finding that the raw
register values are essential for debugging of this driver. The
registers tracing is very trivial and self-explanatory, just can't see
any better variant.

The registers documentation is available for everyone, you can go to
NVIDIA website and download it (after registration).

We have registers tracing in other Tegra drivers, please see for the
quick example:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/drivers/staging/media/tegra-vde/trace.h
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/drivers/gpu/drm/tegra/trace.h

It's the first time I'm seeing complains about debug tracing and
currently having hard time trying to understand yours point.

Okay.
