I was thinking about that, but I figured it is probably easier in the
long run to make sure it always works without printk.

It also just seemed like the right thing to do, but I suppose that's
not a very good reason.

I am fine with any of the three options: depend on CONFIG_PRINTK - as
suggested by Stephen, just use printk - as suggested by Shuah, or
continue to use vprintk_emit as I have been doing. However, my
preference is the vprintk_emit option.

Anyone have any strong opinions on the matter?
