Hmm. If I recall correctly...

There was some sort of discussion (and a patch, I believe) a long time
ago. If I'm not mistaken, guys at facebook somehow add "machine ID"
(e.g. CONFIG_DEFAULT_HOSTNAME?) to kernel messages (via dicts). This
has one interesting use case: net consoles print extended headers.

So they have monitoring systems, which capture and track net consoles
output from many servers, and should one of them warn/oom/etc. they
immediately know which one of the machines is "under the weather"
(ext_text directly points at the right server).

Well, once again, if I recall this correctly.
