Previously KUnit assumed that printk would always be present, which is

Okay after reviewing this, I am not sure why you need to do all
Why can't you just change the root function that throws the warn:
static int kunit_vprintk_emit(int level, const char *fmt, va_list args)
return vprintk_emit(0, level, NULL, 0, fmt, args);
You aren'r really doing anything extra here, other than calling
Yeah, I did that a while ago. I think it was a combination of trying
to avoid an extra layer of adding and then removing the log level, and
that's what dev_printk and friends did.
But I think you are probably right. It's a lot of maintenance overhead
to get rid of that. Probably best to just use what the printk people
Unless I am missing something, can't you solve this problem by including
printk.h and let it handle the !CONFIG_PRINTK case?
Randy, I hope you don't mind, but I am going to ask you to re-ack my
next revision since it basically addresses the problem in a totally
Actually, scratch that. Checkpatch doesn't like me calling printk
without using a KERN_<LEVEL>.
Now that I am thinking back to when I wrote this. I think it also
might not like using a dynamic KERN_<LEVEL> either (printk("%s my
I am going to have to do some more investigation.
Alright, I am pretty sure it is safe to do printk("%smessage", KERN_<LEVEL>);
Looking at the printk implementation, it appears to do the format
before it checks the log level:
So I am pretty sure we can do it either with the vprintk_emit or with printk.
Let me see if we are on the same page first. I am asking if you can
just include printk.h for vprintk_emit() define for both CONFIG_PRINTK
and !CONFIG_PRINTK cases.
Ah sorry, I misunderstood you.
No, that doesn't work. I tried including linux/printk.h, and I get the
The reason for this is that vprintk_emit() is only defined when CONFIG_PRINTK=y:
I am not asking you to use printk() in place of vprintk_emit().
It is perfectly fine to use vprintk_emit()
So it appears that we have to weigh the following trade-offs:
- That's what dev_printk uses.
Not sure what you mean by this. I am suggesting if you can just
call vprintk_emit() and include printk.h and not have to ifdef
around all the other callers of kunit_vprintk_emit()
Oh, I was just saying that I heavily based my implementation of
kunit_printk on dev_printk. So I have a high degree of confidence that
it is okay to use it the way that I am using it.
Yes. There is the other issue of why do you need the complexity
of having kunit_vprintk_emit() at all.
Right, and the problem with the alternative, is there is no good
kernel API for logging with the log level set dynamically. printk
prefers to have it as a string prefix on the format string, but I
cannot do that because I need to add my own prefix to the format
So, I guess I should just go ahead and address the earlier comments on
