You'd also want to extract the "0000:03:00.0", "r8169" (device driver name), and possibly "up".

And the date, host, and source values aren't from the kernel, so they wouldn't be in there.

the information may not be from the kernel, but by the time anything other than the log transport sees the data, it will need to be there (and arguably the timestamp should be put there by the kernel)

Aren't we talking about in what form the kernel should produce log messages?

I had wandered a bit from that, but yes, that's where we started.

And the kernel should put the timestamp on the messages it generates, you don't know how long it's going to be before some other process picks them up and could add a timestamp to them.
