Log messages are often consumed by log monitors, which mostly use
pattern matching to find messages they're interested in, so you have to
take some care when changing the messages the kernel spits out and you
have to make sure any change gets well notified so the distributions
can warn about it.

For this one, can we see a "before" and "after" message so we know
what's happening?
