These ought to be BIT(0) and BIT(1)

Why 'u64 flags' ?
How many flags do you envisage ??
Your HEXDUMP_ASCII (etc) flags are currently signed values and might
get sign extended causing grief.
'unsigned int flags' is probably sufficient.

I've not really looked at the code, it seems OTT in places though.

If someone copies it somewhere where the performance matters
(I've user space code which is dominated by its tracing!)
then you don't want all the function calls and conditionals
even if you want some of the functionality.
