To print 64-bit debugging output on 32-bit machines. I personally need
it to aid with development of a 64-bit filesystem. We're maintaining our
own 2.2.17 patched kernel here, but I figure that other people can make
use of 64-bit printk in their efforts as well.

Perhaps a better question would be, why reject it? 2.4 supports 64-bit
printk, right? It would be nice to have it on 2.2 as well, as it may be
a while before 2.4 is widely used in production machines.
