    This is just as "bad" as the loglevel parameter. Because you'd have
    to parse str[0] in _every_ write() function. Furthermore, the string
    that is being printed also goes to klogd/syslog, including the <N>
    tag already. If you now add a color byte in the KERN_* macros, then
    that color byte would also go to syslog. Not good.
