OK. Now the question is - what is "a bug" in this case? Are those
printk-s really a bug? Consoles are very complex, with dependencies
on timers, networking, etc. having them appending more messages to
the logbuf is not very cool, but at the time the kernel does not
BUG_ON(), nor panic(); it moves on. It's printk()->console_unlock()
that turns it into lockup->panic(). Is the bug really in the consoles
then?
