Good call. It was a fast path for pr_cont("\n").
But it made me wondering and I did some grepping

arch/m68k/kernel/traps.c: pr_cont("\n ");
arch/m68k/kernel/traps.c: pr_cont("\n ");
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: pr_cont("\n expected tramp: %lx\n", ip);

Lovely.
It will take us some time.

Not that I see any problems with pr_line_flush(). But can drop it, sure.
pr_line() is a replacement for pr_cont() and as such it's not for multi-line
buffering.
