From: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com>

printk.time=1/CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME=1 adds a unmodified local hardware clock
timestamp to printk messages.  The local hardware clock loses time each
day making it difficult to determine exactly when an issue has occurred in
the kernel log, and making it difficult to determine how kernel and
hardware issues relate to each other in real time.

Make printk output different timestamps by adding options for no
timestamp, the local hardware clock, the monotonic clock, the boottime
clock, and the real clock.  Allow a user to pick one of the clocks by
using the printk.time kernel parameter.  Output the type of clock in
/sys/module/printk/parameters/time so userspace programs can interpret the
timestamp.

v2: Use peterz's suggested Kconfig options.  Merge patchset together.
Fix i386 !CONFIG_PRINTK builds.

v3: Fixed x86_64_defconfig. Added printk_time_type enum and
printk_time_str for better output. Added BOOTTIME clock functionality.

v4: Fix messages, add additional printk.time options, and fix configs.

v5: Renaming of structures, and allow printk_time_set() to
evaluate substrings of entries (eg: allow 'r', 'real', 'realtime').  From
peterz, make fast functions return 0 until timekeeping is initialized
(removes timekeeping_active & ktime_get_boot|real_log_ts() suggested by
 tglx and adds ktime_get_real_offset()).  Switch to a function pointer
for printk_get_ts() and reference fast functions.  Make timestamp_sources enum
match choice options for CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME (adds PRINTK_TIME_UNDEFINED).

v6: Define PRINTK_TIME_UNDEFINED for !CONFIG_PRINTK builds.  Separate
timekeeping changes into separate patch.  Minor include file cleanup.

v7: Add default case to printk_set_timestamp() and add PRINTK_TIME_DEBUG
for users that want to set timestamp to different values during runtime.
Add jstultz' Kconfig to avoid defconfig churn.

v8: Add CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME_DEBUG to allow timestamp runtime switching.
Rename PRINTK_TIME_DISABLE to PRINTK_TIME_DISABLED.  Rename
printk_set_timestamp() to printk_set_ts_func().  Separate
printk_set_ts_func() and printk_get_first_ts() portions.  Rename param
functions.  Adjust configs, enum, and timestamp_sources_str to be 0-4.
Add mention realtime clock is UTC in Documentation.

v9: Fix typo.  Add __ktime_get_real_fast_ns_unsafe().

v10: Remove time parameter restrictions.

v11: Rework using tglx's real time patch

v12: Reword Kconfig names.  Simplify timestamp logic and remove
recursive code.

v13: This patch seems have being forgotten for 3 years. Rebase it on
the latest kernel v5.8, reolve conflicts and fix compiling errors.
Change code to adapt new printk_time usage.
Petr's concern on printk_time is addressed by current version of kernel, too.

Lyra,

Copying a reply I sent to Orson who sent me this patch privately this
morning with some additional information.

ISTR the reason that this was dropped was because of the a problem with
the way systemd read the kernel's timestamps.  It got the attention of
Linus, and it was then pulled from the tree.

I need to go back and review the entire thread as it's been several years
since we had the discussion although ISTR someone mentioning that doing two
timestamps would not be a problem for systemd.

For example,

[48551.015086]

would be

[48551.015086] m[xxxx.xxxx]

for the monotonic clock timestamp, and

[48551.015086] b[xxxx.xxxx]

for the boottime clock, etc.

P.
