Weeeeeelllllllll.... if you're not allergic to trigraphs,

        printk(KERN_INFO "SAL %d.%d: %.32s %.32s%sversion %d.%d\n",
                        sal_rev_major, sal_rev_minor, systab->oem_id,
                        systab->product_id, systab->product_id[0] ? " " : "",
                        sal_b_rev_major, sal_b_rev_minor);

does the trick nicely ;-)

I'll send a patch when you've come to a decision about how you want the
SAL revision comparison to look -- it all touches the same area of code.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
