Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] printk: add interface for disabling recursion check
From: ShuoX Liu <shuox.liu@intel.com>

With some special scenario, such as Machine Check Exception happened
in printk, we want to bypass printk recursion check to printk some
important information. So we add these interfaces of printk.

1) printk_recursion_check_disable() for disabling recursion check
2) printk_recursion_check_enable() for enabling recursion check
