Adding many more people and lkml to the cc list. Please don't poke people
in private, but always cc a relevant mailing list.

I think the right approach here is to add a new function to do the console
flushing:

/**
* console_flush - flush dmesg if console isn't suspended
*
* console_unlock always flushes the dmesg buffer, so just try to
* grab&drop the console lock. If that fails we know that the current
* holder will eventually drop the console lock and so flush the dmesg
* buffers at the earliest possible time.
*/
void console_flush(void)
{
if (console_trylock())
console_unlock();
}

Then use that instead of the unconditional console_lock/unlock pair int
the console_cpu_notitifier. Since that's practically the patch already
feel free to smash a Signed-off-by: Daniel Vetter <daniel.vetter@ffwll.ch>
on top if it works.

Cheers, Daniel
