I'm wondering if prb can always report about its problems. Including the
cases when things "go rather bad".

Suppose we have

printk()
prb_reserve()
!data_reserve()
add_descr_list()
WARN_ON_ONCE()
printk()
prb_reserve()
!assign_descr(e) << lost WARN_ON's "printk" or "printks"?

In general, assuming that there might be more error printk-s either
called directly directly from prb->printk on indirectly, from
prb->ABC->printk.

Also note,
Lost printk-s are not going to be accounted as 'lost' automatically.
It seems that for printk() there is no way to find out that it has
recursed from printk->prb_commit but hasn't succeeded in storing
recursive messages. I'd say that prb_reserve() err_out should probably
&rb->lost++.
