    Yes it does.

    There are hundreds of possible interleaves in kernel
    source today. Adding a couple more isn't horrible.

    The changes Matt proposes are good because they make the
    kernel image smaller with a very minimal chance of
    deciphering difficulty.

    Someday there'll be a "multiline_printk_start/end"
    mechanism that will avoid interleaving.
