When i was referring to 15 chars, its coming from here:
Its the space reserved in each line of output. Corresponding space for
cpuid is 4 chars: "[x] ":

static size_t print_time(u64 ts, char *buf)
        unsigned long rem_nsec;

        if (!printk_time)
                return 0;

        if (!buf)

are u proposing:
a) to make cpuid a u16?
b) to put cpuid in struct cont and struct log - under the #ifdef macro?
