Avoiding gibberish when multiple processes print to same tty using SystemTap

Script:

stap -e '
    global lines; 
    
    probe syscall.write { 
        if(execname() == "alloc-bench" && fd == 2) { 
            line = lines[pid()] . user_string_n(buf_uaddr, count);
            if(isinstr(line, "\n")) {
                printdln(" ", pid(), lines[pid()]); 
                delete lines[pid()];
            }
            else lines[pid()] = line; } } '

Original output:
