Subject[PATCH 0/2] printk: replace ringbuffer
Date
Hello,

After several RFC series [0][1][2][3][4], here is the first set of
patches to rework the printk subsystem. This first set of patches
only replace the existing ringbuffer implementation. No locking is
removed. No semantics/behavior of printk are changed.

The VMCOREINFO is updated, which will require changes to the
external crash [5] tool. I will be preparing a patch to add support
for the new VMCOREINFO.

This series is in line with the agreements [6] made at the meeting
during LPC2019 in Lisbon, with 1 exception: support for dictionaries
will _not_ be discontinued [7]. Dictionaries are stored in a separate
buffer so that they cannot interfere with the human-readable buffer.
