you are right. wouldn't do much harm (an extra console_unlock() from
printk_kthread in the worst case), but agree.

I added it there because of that "!can_use_console()" branch. not that
I expect printk_kthread being executed on !online CPU, but we might have
no callable consoles.

probably should have that clear_bit() before and after the loop.
