Fair enough, I can admit this because I don't know the mm specifics.
However, my initial point was about the long message which might be
cut into pieces during Oops or whatever and the user will get the
first parts only. Depends on what you consider as a higher priority
to print the order might be different. Initial patch suggested to
print the new fields first.
