Given said computer society would probably no longer exist if it had not
you judge. I don't see what the problem is with the copyright messages. It
would be good to change them to all use the same format and style so we
get for example

eth0: NE2000 IRQ 7 I/O 0x240 Address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX Version 1.14

but also changing stuff like the floppy to report

fd0: XXXXXchip IRQ n I/O xxx ....

The way to do this would probably be to provide

report_config(devname, irq, io, mem, memend, dma, other, version);

that did the formatting how you wanted it (assuming IO -1 , MEM -1 etc mean
no entry for)
