Never use the same log source (pipe, stream, diagram) two or more times.
You should reorganize your source sections:

source s_common { pipe ("/proc/kmsg" log_prefix("kernel: "));
unix-stream("/dev/log"); internal(); };

source s_udp { udp(); };
source s_tcp { tcp(); };

And modify your log sections accordingly.
