That's doing more than one thing here at once, care to break it up?
Yeah, I know it seems funny for such a small patch, but it helps.

Also, now that you've added this, the logger driver still can't be built
as a module, as the build system isn't changed to let that happen,
right?

Also, why do you want to build this as a module?

Is that message really needed?

Is module_init() the same "level" as device_initcall()? Did you test
this out in an Android system?

What's with the unneeded trailing empty lines?
