SubjectRe: silly [< >] and other excess
    From Thu Nov 23 00:17:21 2000

Well, in my experience, values of PC (or EIP is x86 speak) rarely
appear over column 50 on the screen. Therefore, removing them is
only going to save width, not height.

The EIP is not pushed out of sight horizontally, but vertically.
(Maybe you never saw a i386 oops. With [<>] the call trace takes
twice as many lines (on a 25x80 screen) as without.)

Also, have you considered that not every oops is formatted exactly
the same way on every architecture?

Do you propose to teach klogd and ksymoops every single oops format style?

It is a triviality.
Besides, the patch only modified i386.
