Hello thank you your comment.

Yes, userspace can trigger printk, but this was useful for to know why
a userspace task was crashed. There seems to be still many userspace
applications which did not check error of mmap and access invalid address.

Additionally in my AARCH64 Android environment, display driver tries to
get userspace address to map its display memory. The display driver
report -ENOMEM from vm_unmapped_area and but also from GPU related
address space.

Please let me know your comment again if this debug is now allowed
in that userspace triggered perspective.

I may change to pr_debug or drop this change.

Thank you
