Description ink 1999-02-09 15:02:23 UTC
In a recent 2.1-2.2 kernels messages like
"some_ide_controller: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs
are quite common.
On some systems klogd segfaults on such messages, in the
best case klogd survives but corrupts these messages.
The reason is that printf and family count a single "%"
as a format operator, and expect an argument, which is
Debian folks fixed this problem some time ago, but their
way looks a bit complex for me, so I suggest another patch.
