printk: do not mangle valid userspace syslog prefixes
printk: do not mangle valid userspace syslog prefixes with /dev/kmsg Log messages passed to the kernel log by using /dev/kmsg or /dev/ttyprintk might contain a syslog prefix including the syslog facility value. This makes printk to recognize these headers properly, extract the real log level from it to use, and add the prefix as a proper prefix to the log buffer, instead of wrongly printing it as the log message text. Before: $ echo '<14>text' > /dev/kmsg $ dmesg -r <4>[135159.594810] <14>text After: $ echo '<14>text' > /dev/kmsg $ dmesg -r <14>[ 50.750654] text Cc: Lennart Poettering <> Signed-off-by: Kay Sievers <> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <>
