Hi Jason,

Couple of nit-picks about the module part of this patch. First, this could
just be called "verbose" rather than "start_verbose"...

This loop seems way more complex than it needs to be. Perhaps pull these two
out into a setup_verbose_debug() func which is a noop
for !CONFIG_DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG, and drop all the casts?

Thanks,
