This slip through the cracks. Tetsuo pinged me and I am testing now.
Need to create a set of tests and update parsing code to handle this.

I've pushed support for CONFIG_PRINTK_CALLER to syzkaller/syzbot:
Let's see what happens. Limited local testing shows that it's working
as intended and significatly improves quality of reports and ability
to make sense out of kernel output.

Tetsuo, thanks for your great persistence with this change!
Sergey, Petr, thanks for reviews!

+Fengguang, Kevin, maybe you will find this useful for 0-day/kernel-ci.

Thanks! We'll try out CONFIG_PRINTK_CALLER.
