Not sure why. I just assume that a printk that has no KERN_ is adding a
newline, which is my understanding of Joe's comment.

The main limitation that is likely to remain in my script is that
Coccinelle doesn't always understand ifdefs properly. So
#ifdef
printk("xxx");
#else
printk("yyy");
#endif
pr_cont("zzz");

may give a warning about the first printk.

0-day only runs on changed files and only reports on changed code, to
the best of my understanding, so I don't think it is a problem.
