If the idea is also to get rid of printk() too (which IMHO would be a
good thing as it kills off the constant need to continually patch for
missing KERN_ prefixes) then that's a good reason (provided Linus
accepts the idea.) At that point having such patches as part of a
progressive series of patches also makes sense.

Doing it piecemeal when we've already had frequent complaints from
Linus about useless churn with no apparant reasoning behind it doesn't
help relieve us of those accusations.
