Subject[PATCH 12/44] printk: /dev/kmsg - properly support writev() to avoid interleaved printk() lines
Date
From: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org>

printk: /dev/kmsg - properly support writev() to avoid interleaved printk lines

We should avoid calling printk() in a loop, when we pass a single
string to /dev/kmsg with writev().
