Yeah, I wasn't 100% serious ;-)

It would be possible to do the patch - but I think there are vastly better
syslog daemons that already do all those things correctly (and also
parse the kmsg timestamps) (syslog-ng etc).

But I figured out how to do it - and I don't actually want to do it on
my system, so now we have an archived version.

I'd just go the UNIX way and ignore the problem and hope it goes away ;-)

We can already filter via vmunix.*shepherd as-is, that should work anyhow.
