As written the patch has the nice property of not making any changes to the
console output (except to eliminate the possibility of interleaved output that
the original code had). Whereas making the change you suggest would end
up with a useless "{}" in the usermode case (or worse if %pSR did something
with m->ip .. which is most probably not NULL ... it should be a valid user mode
instruction pointer when m->cs != KERNEL_CS).
