Can you please at least force all messages to KERN_INFO for 2.1.0?

Savannah is hosted and maintained by the GNU project. If you have specific bugs about the site, it should be directed to the Savannah project.

I agree with that Dazuko should print messages at various levels. Here are my comments to your readings:

1. I agree that a print function without size limitation should never be used. But most Linux kernels don't have a function to use.

2. I agree that this should be done.

These changes will not be a part of the 2.1.0 release, but can be done for the 2.1.1 version.

Something wrong with this site!!!
It loses posts and logoff user in the middle of work...
bugzilla is much better...

Read some stuff...

1. NEVER use print function without size limitation.
2. Always put KERN_XXX at prefix of printk messages.
I've done this only at one place, maybe you want to do this for each message.
PLEASE don't redirect none critical messages to console.

The following messages overrides boot-splash in silent mode.

dazuko_core.c:          call_xp_print("dazuko: loaded, version=%s\n", VERSION_STRING);
dazuko_core.c:          call_xp_print("dazuko: unloaded, version=%s\n", VERSION_STRING);

Please find a differnet way to display messages that are printed only to kernel log and not on console.
