So I have this in my security run output:

WTF now?

I'm not sure if that's a real kernel message that got garbled or whether
I should be worried about naughtiness.

It looks like multiple messages overlapping each other.  Removing 3
characters every 4 bytes in the output produces things which seem
vaguely recognizable:

    <22NNI II A ,,,EISA  fff
    <<2>NMI  SS 300  ISAAfff

There's a sysctl option which you can tweak to make this less likely to
happen, but I am not sure about its name.  Our console gurus can help
you track it down and tune its value :)

The kernel option I've seen mentioned before to at least make this less common is:

options PRINTF_BUFR_SIZE=128    # Prevent printf output being interspersed.
