SubjectNMI watchdog, die(), & console_loglevel
The i386 NMI watchdog handler prints a message, sets console_loglevel 
to 0 (no output to console), and then kills the current task
(arch/i386/kernel/nmi.c:nmi_watchdog_tick()); it then leaves the
console turned off.

die(), on the other hand, starts out by setting console_loglevel to
15 (print everything), and leaves it there.

Neither behavior seems particularly appropriate, and taken together
they seem at least inconsistent. What's the justification, if any,
and wouldn't it be better to leave console_loglevel alone and set an
appropriate message loglevel? (Not that I'd claim for an instant that
message loglevels are used consistently; have a look at the various
applications of KERN_EMERG, for example.)
