The entire patchset looks fine from my point of view.

Andrew, if you do not mind, I am going to make it tested in linux-next
via mine new git tree, see
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/pmladek/printk.git/

I will push there also the patch that modifies MAINTAINERS file.
Then I will try to get all these changes upstream in the next merge
window.

It will be great if you still could keep an eye over the printk
patches and stop us when we do something bad.

Best Regards,
Petr
