Most of the NetBSD kernel tree still uses printf(9) to send messages to the console, primarily during boot and autoconfiguration. Each printf during autoconfiguration should be audited, and replaced with the appropriate aprint_* function, to make the boot verbose option work properly.
Additionally, printfs in drivers that report status, or errors during normal kernel operation should be converted to use the log(9) function instead.
