Subject[PATCH] printk: fix discarding message when recursion_bug
From: Hiroshi Shimamoto <h-shimamoto@ct.jp.nec.com>

Impact: fix

When recursion_bug is true, kernel discards original message because printk_buf
contains recursion_bug_msg with NULL terminator. The sizeof(recursion_bug_msg)
makes this, use strlen() to get correct length without NULL terminator.
