Yes, since it needs explicit enabling, local parsers should stay
working. Unless we send dmesg to other developers, but then they
might also receive $(dmesg --raw) outputs and need to handle <%u>
prefixes, too.

Thanks. Since the 0day scripts can already parse that format (code
is listed below), we should quickly benefit from that feature when
it's mainlined.

https://github.com/fengguang/lkp-tests/blob/master/lib/dmesg.rb

oops = `#{grep} -a -E -e '^<[0123]>' -e '^kern :(err |crit |alert |emerg ): ' #{kmsg_file} |
sed -r 's/\\x1b\\[([0-9;]+m|[mK])//g' |
grep -a -v -E -f #{LKP_SRC}/etc/oops-pattern |
grep -a -v -F -f #{LKP_SRC}/etc/kmsg-blacklist`

Thanks,
Fengguang
