Thanks Mark,

I had asked this question before and didn't get an answer: Do I need to
worry about the ABI of /sys/modules/printk/parameters/time. Since it hasn't
been explicitly added to the stable ABI files, I'm going to assume it wasn't
important enough to add it. Looking at google, however, leads to a lot
of hits for 'printk.time' kernel parameters settings so I think I better
maintain the legacy boolean settings.

I'm going to do: 0/n/N/1/y/Y to maintain the existing ABI, and add (as you
suggest above 'disable|local|boottime|monotonic|realtime' as valid
parameters.

It would be trivial then to add only the lower case options (I dislike upper
case settings ...) by adding

!strcmp(printk_time_str[0], param, 1)

P.
