The printk bits are neatly separated out in the -tip
tree, in a standalone tree, tip:core/printk:

earth4:~/tip> gll linus..core/printk
42c2c8c: printk: Fix "printk: Enable the use of more than one CON_BOOT (early console)"
1aaad49: printk: Restore previous console_loglevel when re-enabling logging
8259cf4: printk: Ensure that "console enabled" messages are printed on the console
4d09161: printk: Enable the use of more than one CON_BOOT (early console)

So we can base on that and extend it with your bits, and
Greg could pull this into the USB tree as well he he
wants to (this tree is focused to this single topic and
is non-rebasing).

The git coordinates are:

git:// core/printk

Please Cc: new printk/console bits to Linus and Andrew as
