Hmm, this is interesting.

I would agree.

It's a bit funny that kernel people first take the patch in and then,
when user-space begins to use the feature, start to object and ratelimit.

By the way, systemd seems to be OK with alternative logging targets

/etc/systemd/system.conf

---
[Manager]
#LogLevel=info
LogTarget=syslog console journal
---

Everything looks fine with read-only devkmsg (running the patched
kernel). "journalctl -f -b" gives a nice system log:

...
kernel: r8169 0000:04:00.0 enp4s0: renamed from eth0
kernel: snd_hda_codec_realtek hdaudioC0D0: Line=0x1a
systemd-udevd[180]: link_config: autonegotiation is unset or enabled, the speed and duplex are not writable.
systemd[1]: Started Flush Journal to Persistent Storage.
kernel: input: HDA Intel PCH Line as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.3/sound/card0/input7
...


Given how often systemd hits ratelimits (I googled some bug reports),
I wonder if systemd people are still interested in /dev/kmsg logging
at all.
