That'd be useful indeed :)

I'd say just keep the file as it is upstream, so we can sync more easily
in the future.

Please move the content to lib.h then, since it won't be gpl any more.

Did you check the boot output e.g. of a trivial mini-os application?
Notably, iirc there were perhaps odd formating with %x, %p or such.
Moving to the posix behavior would be a good thing, I'd just want to
know whether we have some behavior change.
