      printk: clean up handling of log-levels and newlines · 5fd29d6c
      Linus Torvalds authored
      It used to be that we would only look at the log-level in a printk()
      after explicit newlines, which can cause annoying problems when the
      previous printk() did not end with a '\n'. In that case, the log-level
      marker would be just printed out in the middle of the line, and be
      seen as just noise rather than change the logging level.
      This changes things to always look at the log-level in the first
      bytes of the printout. If a log level marker is found, it is always
      used as the log-level. Additionally, if no newline existed, one is
      added (unless the log-level is the explicit KERN_CONT marker, to
      explicitly show that it's a continuation of a previous line).
