I've been playing with gcov/lcov

to get the coverage for a given module:

1/ build the product
2/ make module.clean
3/ gb_GCOV=YES make module
4/ run lcov on workdir/
5/ run genhtml
6/ enjoy :-)

7/ do not forget the make module.clean again after... otherwise the
link will fail later if you have gcov-enable object in a
non-gcov-enabled link (which also means that for static library it is
a bit more complicated)
