Were these emitted with "KERN_<LEVEL>" string constants
before this change (not <[0-7]>", but the string text
KERN_INFO, KERN_WARNING, etc...)?

Perhaps it's better to change the um STR macro instead

$ git grep -w DEFINE_STR
arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_EMERG, KERN_EMERG);
arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_ALERT, KERN_ALERT);

arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_ERR, KERN_ERR);
arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_WARNING, KERN_WARNING);
arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_NOTICE, KERN_NOTICE);
arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_INFO, KERN_INFO);

arch/um/include/shared/common-offsets.h:DEFINE_STR(UM_KERN_CONT, KERN_CONT);
arch/x86/um/shared/sysdep/kernel-offsets.h:#define DEFINE_STR(sym, val) asm volatile("\n->" #sym " " STR(val) " " #val: : )
