Dear god, that's nasty.

I agree that the vmcore info name probably needs to be retained, but
maybe we could just do that with

#define VMCOREINFO_FIELD_AND_OFFSET(name, field, offset) \
vmcoreinfo_append_str("OFFSET(%s.%s)=%lu\n", name, field, offset)

and then do

#define VMCOREINFO_OFFSET(name, field) \
(unsigned long)offsetof(struct name, offset))

and for that ts_nsec you can then do

/* ts.mono used to be called "ts_nsec" */
VMCOREINFO_FIELD_AND_OFFSET("printk_log", "ts_nsec",
(unsigned long)offsetof(struct printk_log, ts.mono))

or something.

And I may obviously have messed that all up, I wrote it all in the
email client, so it's more pseudo-code than anything else.

But it looks pretty straight-forward conceptually, and would make it
pretty clear what is going on, no?
