title="Convert kernel printf() to aprint_*() or log()"


duration="2-4 Weeks"

Most of the NetBSD kernel tree still uses printf(9) to send messages to the
console, primarily during boot and device configuration.  Each printf during
device configuration should be audited, and replaced with the appropriate aprint_*
function, to make the verbose boot 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.
