CW> I know it's trivial but I sent a PR (163149) with a patch (of sorts).

I find that kernel log messages about killed processes are doubling the
characters just like that (on an SMP machine). Probably thay are getting killed
simultaneously and the kernel writes msg about that one-by-one character.

Should I file a PR on this? Have no idea how could I reproduce a situation. but
it's regularly sent from 'periodic daily' several kernel log messages collected
for a day.
