Having the kernel be the keeper of the logging IPC isn't at all
unreasonable. However, kmsg in its current form isn't adequate.
Augmenting it into a proper logging IPC might be the right thing to do.
(Hmm... new IPC... does this sound a bit like kdbus to anyone?)

The original motivation for /dev/kmsg was of course in the context of
klibc to maintain the current behavior of the items I was hoping to move
from kernel to user space.
