I will reply to this email with examples of console boot message
changes as a result of this patch series.

(1) boot before patches
(2) boot after this patch series
(3) messages from (2) processed by of_unittest_expect
(4) meesages from boot after Geert's patches on top of this patch
    series processed by of_unittest_expect
