:We have quite a few kprintf's in the kernel that do not necessarily
:report error conditions, they are purely informational and highlight
:odd or rare cases that often the end-user of the operating system
:really doesn't need to know about. This has been discussed quite a few
:times on IRC.
:I would like to put these under a sysctl like kern.developer and wrap
:them in a function like dkprintf unless anyone has any major
:objections. (I'm open to suggestions on the naming).

    I'd rather not.  If any of them have becoming annoying we can
    remove them after a quick code review in irc.
