Agreed, though to be clear, before, I think every byte in the string
is hex-escaped. After this patch, the space and specials will get
character-based escapes and everything else will switch to octal escapes.

i.e. a string of newline, capital-a, NUL will change from "\x0a\x41" to
"\n\101".

Given that this is only reported to dmesg, it is probably fine. Also,
it's staging and prism2 ... is anyone actually using this?
