Why? Joe consumer wants it.

As to the ever growing size of the kernel, there could be a official addons/tools
tree with non-core functions maintained by a seperate maintainer. Things like
debuggers, profiling or (swsusp) debug support could go there as well...

Right, Good idea! Just print always "ugly" swsusp context on a text VT - plus any
error messages - and switch over to this VT in printk when not in interrupt
context. 10 lines of code or so in printk ;)
