    But if the event is normal, you shouldn't be logging it as if
    it weren't.

    Anyone who tries to use IP over appletalk or certain protocols
    over PPP are going to see your silly messages.

    As I understand it, you even do this stupid printk for user apps
    as well, that makes it more than rediculious. I'd be surprised
    if anyone can find any useful kernel messages on an ia64 system
    in the dmesg output with all the unaligned access crap there.
