Fair enough. I still think that it would make sense to move the code
but I do not want to block this patch because of this.

My view is that vsprintf.c is huge and the hashing-related code
is lost there. It consists of more pieces, early_param, static key,
workqueue work.

I see. With this fix, feel free to add:

Acked-by: Petr Mladek <pmladek@suse.com> # lib/vsprintf.c

The clean up could be done by a followup patches.

Best Regards,
