The simplest approach (if Linus can tolerate) would be to merge any
debug printk() patches to linux.git with single kernel config option
(e.g. CONFIG_DEBUG_AID_FOR_SYZBOT=y) for turning them on/off.
Assuming that we will eventually be able to move to saving and analyzing
vmcore files, some bit of debug printk() code would be tolerable for now?

Other possible approach (if Andrew can tolerate) would be to use
linux-next.git and carry debug printk() patches via mmotm tree.
