I'd rather have the dozen or so single-line newline additions
than the multiple hundreds to thousands of changes that are
still going to be required to get KERN_CONT to work properly
Many arch specific printks still have to be fixed for this
new KERN_CONT style. sparc, powerpc, arm, arm64, and others.
Multiple dozens to hundreds of drivers too.
