This is not a general weakness of the approach. Junk sneaking in is even
easier when you link and it will just find all functions. Having to
manually add functions to a table at least is a barrier to take and for
sure a hook for discussions.

I completely agree. We will have to rethink this once we have usb
console as that might be worth sharing.

The Qemu target really only uses printk in initram from stage0. Did not
check stage2 yet
