so I quickly cooked the first version. like really quickly. just to
check if this is what people might like/use.

RFC.

so wondering if this will suffice. the name is somewhat hideous -- prbuf(),
wanted to keep it short and somehow aligned with pr_foo().

the patch also defines a number of prbuf_err()/prbuf_cont() macros that
call __prbuf_write() -- I don't want people to invoke __prbuf_write()
directly, because we need KERN_FOO prefix for stored messages and people
tend to forget to provide one.

prbuf_init() function inits the seq_buf buffer. it takes size and GFP
mask, just to permit prbuf usage from different contexts. if we fail
to kmalloc() the buffer, then __prbuf_write() does direct printk().

a usage example:


struct seq_buf s;

prbuf_init(&s, 256, GFP_KERNEL);

prbuf_err(&s, "Opps at %lu\n", _RET_IP_);
prbuf_info(&s, "Start of cont line");
prbuf_cont(&s, " foo ");
prbuf_cont(&s, " bar ");
prbuf_cont(&s, " status: %s\n", "done");

ret = 0;
while (ret++ < 10)
prbuf_err(&s, "%x\n", ret);

prbuf_flush(&s);
prbuf_free(&s);


this will store everything in conseq logbuf entries. if the buffer
was too small, we print overflow message.

any comments?
