    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.)
