SubjectRe: [PATCH] printk: add KERN_NOTIME to skip the timestamp

Can you be a bit more detailed on this. When and where does this
happen? If anything, I would probably prefer that we export whether
time is being printed, and have the caller not print time if printk is
doing it already, than to add the complexity into printk itself.
