naaah, not really :)

so... I think we don't have to update 'struct printk_log'. we can store
that "extended data" at the beginning of every message, right after the
prefix.

NOTE:

below is a very-very quick hack. so quick, that it has known problems.
- the code does not handle !PREFIX messages (like printk("foo")).
but I guess we can come up with a solution here.
- and printk_vscnprintf() should have that CONFIG_PRINTK_ABC,
which is missing in the code below.


dmesg looks like this

[ 3.338129] [ext: kworker/3:2/3] input: ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input7
[ 3.340653] [ext: systemd-udevd/0] mousedev: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
[ 5.554184] [ext: swapper/0/0] random: crng init done
[ 33.410639] [ext: wpa_supplicant/6] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlp2s0: link is not ready
[ 36.812187] [ext: kworker/u16:5/1] wlp2s0: associated
[ 36.812231] [ext: kworker/1:1/1] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlp2s0: link becomes ready



if we will ever decide to add any sort of "extended data" to every
message, then may be we can do it this way?
