The excessive number of very ugly linebreaks in this statement should have told you
that the whole printk_time function wants to be broken out of vsprintk(), into a
helper function.

Please make it two patches: one cleanup-only patch that factors out the code, the
second one that modifies it materially.

Thanks,
