Subject[PATCH 5/5] printk: Return really stored message length
Date
I wonder if anyone uses printk return value but it is there and should be
counted correctly.

This patch modifies log_store() to return the number of really stored bytes
from the 'text' part. Also it handles the return value in vprintk_emit().

Note that log_store() is used also in cont_flush() but we could ignore the
return value there. The function works with characters that were already
counted earlier. In addition, the store could newer fail here because the
length of the printed text is limited by the "cont" buffer and "dict" is NULL.
