The stuff in the other message aside, there is another thing that can be
problematic. Since systemd starts services in parallel, there's no guarantee
that messages to the console will come in any particular order, or even that
they'll not come at the same time. So, it's possible that the host key
dumped to the console might get another message right in the middle.
