This is an unorganized list of items that may be worth looking at:

stuff about printk messages

Mark Rustad patch to remove init printk messages

http://lkml.org/lkml/2004/12/9/146

This change allows format strings in printks to be directed to an object section where they can be discarded at run time. By using "pkinit" instead of "printk" inside of __init functions, the format strings associated with the __init functions can be reclaimed.
