linked modules are not printed as a single line - printk("module linked in ................................").

it's a bunch of pr_cont() calls:

printk(KERN_DEFAULT "Modules linked in:");
list_for_each_entry_rcu(mod, &modules, list) {
pr_cont(" %s%s", mod->name, module_flags(mod, buf))

when pr_cont() buffer is getting full, we just flush it (log_store())

if (cont.len + len > sizeof(cont.buf))

but the point is -- we don't truncate anything
here, and don't lose the content. don't we?
