    Why do we have printk anyway? It serves the same purpose as printf and
    is even tagged as `taking arguments like printf' for gcc's type-checking
    benefit. It makes it harder to take large chunks of code and move it
    to userspace for testing (ok, i can #define printk printf, but still).
    Just Hysterical Raisins?
