Yes, this is what I have acquired from commit log and code.

The emergency mechanism is a good way.

Extracting a part of log from my LOG_CONT message,

[    0.761635] 000:  (family: 0x6, model: 0xf
[    0.761635] 000: , stepping: 0xb)

It obviously separates a full line. Maybe it is not related to LOG_CONT. ^_^


The counterpart source code:

1499     pr_cont(" (family: 0x%x, model: 0x%x", c->x86, c->x86_model);
1500
1501     if (c->x86_stepping || c->cpuid_level >= 0)
1502         pr_cont(", stepping: 0x%x)\n", c->x86_stepping);
1503     else
1504         pr_cont(")\n");


I don't know if the issue exists in other place except LOG_CONT.

But it indeed influences customer's judgement.


Thanks for you reply.
