You've gone trigger paste happy here.

If you use an enum for printk_time_setting you can then kdoc'ify
each setting and also match the values names on kconfig. With this
you can move the big comment below onto the kdoc for the enum.
You can then nicely expand on the documentation to explain what
compromises were made for providing time if timekeeping_init() was
not called yet.

/**
* enum printk_time_setting - description
* @PRINTK_TIME_DISABLE: description
* @PRINTK_TIME_LOCAL: description
* @PRINTK_TIME_MONO: description
* @PRINTK_TIME_REAL: description - you can go into the 32-bit issue here
*/
enum printk_time_setting {
PRINTK_TIME_DISABLE = 0,
PRINTK_TIME_LOCAL = 1,
PRINTK_TIME_MONO = 2,
PRINTK_TIME_REAL = 3,
};

And since you are kdoc'ifying consider later adding proper rst format docs
for printk and then pegging this kdoc entry into it. Unfortunately I only
see Documentation/printk-formats.txt and Documentation/x86/earlyprintk.txt,
is that all we have on printk docs?

Then here you can also add a respective conversion for describing what the enum
was, "%s (%d)", printk_time_desc(printk_time), printk_time) which will make it
easier to understand what was done at init in the log.
