i think it makes sense to have 3 levels:
- quiet (see pr kern/5155)
- normal (running about one or two lines per driver instance,
roughly equivalent to current behavior,
and the default default value)
- verbose (spewing more detail).
with boot flags to select each, and a default value specifiable in
boot blocks and/or kernel config file.
the rationale for "quiet" is simple:
certain embedded applications of netbsd might not want to throttle
kernel initialization based on how quickly they can spew out a 9600
baud serial console; others might not want to baffle users with the
RB_QUIET, RB_VERBOSE, ...
