Absolutely.

pr_flush() really seems to be a workaround.

Fundamentally:

e2ae715d66bf kmsg - kmsg_dump() use iterator to receive log buffer content
c313af145b9b printk() - isolate KERN_CONT users from ordinary complete lines
3ce9a7c0ac28 printk() - restore prefix/timestamp printing for multi-newline strings
649e6ee33f73 printk() - restore timestamp printing at console output
5c5d5ca51abd printk() - do not merge continuation lines of different threads
7f3a781d6fd8 printk - fix compilation for CONFIG_PRINTK=n
5fc3249068c1 kmsg: use do_div() to divide 64bit integer
e11fea92e13f kmsg: export printk records to the /dev/kmsg interface
7ff9554bb578 printk: convert byte-buffer to variable-length record buffer

Should we revert them or can they be fixed sanely? Kay seems to
be busy with other things so I guess a revert is the best we can
do. Greg, Kay?

Thanks,

Ingo
