Subject[RFC][PATCHv5 06/13] printk: register PM notifier
Date
It's not always possible/safe to wake_up() printk kernel
thread. For example, late suspend/early resume may printk()
while timekeeping is not initialized yet, so calling into the
scheduler may result in recursive warnings.

Another thing to notice is the fact that PM at some point
freezes user space and kernel threads: freeze_processes()
and freeze_kernel_threads(), correspondingly. Thus we need
printk() to operate in emergency mode there and attempt to
immediately flush pending kernel message to the console.

This patch registers PM notifier, so PM can switch printk
to emergency mode from PM_FOO_PREPARE notifiers and return
back to printk threaded mode from PM_POST_FOO notifiers.
