OK, thanks.

btw:

changing __mlog_printk can save ~11% (90+KB) of object text size
by removing __func__ and __LINE__ and using vsprintf pointer extension
%pS, __builtin_return_address(0) as it is already used in dlmmaster.

(defconfig x86-64, with ocfs2)

$ size fs/ocfs2/built-in.o*
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
 759791	 111373	 105688	 976852	  ee7d4	fs/ocfs2/built-in.o.new
 852959	 111373	 105688	1070020	 1053c4	fs/ocfs2/built-in.o.old

It's nearly the same output.
