Hmmm, while writing a kmsg_dumper for [1], I noticed that struct
kmsg_dumper is:

    /**
     * struct kmsg_dumper - kernel crash message dumper structure
     * @list:        Entry in the dumper list (private)  <== *
     * ...
     * @registered:  Flag that specifies if this is already registered
     */
    struct kmsg_dumper {
    	struct list_head list;
    	...
    	bool registered;
    	/* private state of the kmsg iterator */         <== *
    	...
    };

_All_ private members are annotated (<== *), so this gave the
impression that 'bool registered' was public..

Then I discovered from printk.c code that it's actually private,
and protected by the printk's internal dump_list_lock...

So this trivial patch was submitted for consistency.

thanks,
