just add a new (optional) version of printk() that lets you specify the ID.
In that case why not short-circuit the whole process - add a unique id to every kernel printk() right now (which can hardly be a controversial patch, even for linux-kernel, since it changes no functionality whatsoever) and be done with it. No need to go through the transitional stage of making up ids from CRC32s.
