Subjectprintk() without KERN_ prefixes? (in 2.5.59) and Q: small kernel image doc
Date
Hello everybody,

until now I believed that all printk()'s should have a KERN_ prefix - but to
my surprise it ain't so:
grep printk -r . | grep -v "KERN_" | wc -l
29932
grep printk -r . | grep -v "KERN_" | cut -d: -f1 | uniq | wc -l
2636
so there are ~ 30 000 printk() lines in 2600 files which don't have such a
specifier.

Should they be fixed to KERN_INFO or some such? I'm willing to contribute a
patch (which will be done by script, of course). Or am I missing something
and they shall stay as they are?

I'm looking at this part as I'm trying to get a smaller kernel image, as my
boot media (1.44 MB disk :-( is getting full (yes I know that there's a lot I
can do about userspace too :-) and so I'm thinking about dropping all
KERN_DEBUG, maybe KERN_INFO and possible KERN_NOTICE to save some space. I
remember having read some ideas (and possibly a web reference) on lkml in
mid-2002 but couldn't find them yet.


Anyway, are there some other resources on the web for building small kernel's?
(that is, small kernel images, not for use in small machines). I already
searched a bit and found some sites (mulinux, superant/smalllinux,
linuxrouter, linux embedding, small unix, ...)

I know that I could use an older kernel (2.0 or 2.2) but because of driver
maturity (ie. workarounds for bugs in recent hardware) and performance I'd
like to use current kernels.



Regards,

Phil
