Ah, okay. Forgot about that. Yeah, the kernel is single threaded at
that point, so it shouldn't matter. The code is rather complex so
something simpler would be nice, I agree.

Another thing is that we seem to have structured logging coming our
way and maybe userspace can deal with racing continuing printks? Not
sure how different streams could be distinguished tho. Maybe the
printing task can be used to group them? Kay, is this something
structured logging would solve?
