    Subjectprintk in init_module mixing with printf in insmod
    I recently upgraded my ppc405 embedded system
    from 2.4.2 or so to 2.4.17 or so. I use modutils-2.4.12.
    When I insert a nongpl module,
    fprintf(stderr, "Warning: loading foo.o will taint kernel\n");
    in insmod and the
    printk("Hello, world\n");
    in the module are intermixed unpleasantly, yielding output like
    Warning: loHello,ading foo.o world
    will taint kernel

    This garbled output makes reading the debugging printk's difficult.

    I suppose this isn't terribly important, since printk's are
    kind of a no-no in production, and this only affects printk's
    in init_module, but it'd be nice to know what
    the cleanest way to get rid of the mixing is. Adding a sleep
    inside insmod seems heavyhanded. I suppose I could redirect
    insmod's output to a file, sleep a bit, and then display the
    file... bleah.
