SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] printk: Allocate kernel log buffer earlier v2
Subject: printk: Allocate kernel log buffer earlier v2

On larger systems, because of the numerous ACPI, Bootmem and EFI
messages, the static log buffer overflows before the larger one
specified by the log_buf_len param is allocated. Minimize the
overflow by allocating the new log buffer as soon as possible.

The allocation method is passed in as an argument to make
backporting to "pre-memblock" kernels easier.
