    Though it is a pain when people do this and the output from each iteration
    of the loop gets interleaved with other printk() output. Perhaps it is OK to
    do multiple printk() calls in initialization code where it kernel is
    mostly single
    threaded. But it should be avoided in "oh dear, something bad happened" bits
    of code (in case the badness isn't localized and all the other cpus are spitting
    out partial messages too).
