    I believe this is a layer added by syslogd or klogd in userspace, rather
    than at the kernel level. If your kernel module spews enough data
    through kprint(), you will overflow the dmesg buffer, and the resulting
    corruption will likely make syslogd/klogd flood mitigation fail that
    much faster.
