ok, the patch below (or -51-04 and later kernels) should fix this one.
printk is fully preemptible from now on - lets see how it works out in
practice. (i kept it under irqs-off to make sure we get all crash
messages out. Perhaps we could disable irqs/preemption if
oops_in_progress?) This patch should also fix similar, fbcon related
messages.
