Subject[PATCH v5 0/4] printk: replace ringbuffer
Date
Hello,

Here is a v5 for the first series to rework the printk
subsystem. The v4 is here [0]. This first series
only replaces the existing ringbuffer implementation. No locking
is removed. The semantics/behavior of printk are kept the same
except for a minor optimization that is reverted (patch 3).

RFC patches for various userspace tools to dump the kernel log
are available: crash [1], makedumpfile [2], kexec-tools [3].

This series is based on v5.8-rc4.

The list of changes since v4:

printk_ringbuffer
=================

- added new prb_first_valid_seq() for readers to retrieve the
oldest valid sequence number

- prb_first_seq(): now static

printk.c
========

- devkmsg_read(): fixed returning EPIPE on buffer wrap [4]

- setup_log_buf(): fixed printk conversion specifier [5]

- replace all prb_first_seq() usage with the new
prb_first_valid_seq() (because that is what the readers are
actually interested in)
