Subject: Re: [PATCH] printk: add KERN_NOTIME to skip the timestamp

Hmm. I don't know how many kernel printk-s you have and how often
do you write to kmsg. I was thinking about something like this:

	echo 0 > /...printk.../time
	dump buffer to /dev/kmsg
	echo 1 > /...printk../time

- If you would have several kernel printk-s in the meantime, then
  those would not have timestamps, but you kinda can roughly guess

	write [1243] foo > /dev/kmsg
	write [1244] foo > /dev/kmsg
		<< printk(bar)               <timestamp ~[1244,1245]>
	write [1245] foo > /dev/kmsg

Maybe this won't suffice.
