CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME is not the same as CONFIG_EARLY_PRINTK. The former
is very useful to make sense of dmesg (otherwise you dont know what
messages "belong together") and it should not have any negative side
effects (I have been using it for years). The latter might be, as you
say, annoying and should perhaps be removed, it is not new in this
release though (it is from before the start of the packages repo)...
