    Just a note, some other distros already use the 'U' flag in taint
    messages to show an "unsupported" module has been loaded. I know it's
    out-of-the-tree and will never go into mainline, just FYI if you happen
    to see some 'U' flags in the wild today...

    Oh, and I like this feature, makes sense to me to have this.

    thanks,
