i asked for that because we had regressions in the past in the form of
"it takes one minute to resume".

please keep the warn-on so that it can be detected automatically. Adding
yet another printk just complicates the automated answer to the "is this
kernel that just booted up fine or not" question.

In fact i'd love to have the analogue to /proc/lockdep_debug's
"debug_locks: 0" output. I.e. the kernel should know it via one central
flag whether any bugs that need human review have been detected so far.

Say /proc/sys/kernel/kernel_is_buggy. This value could even be
multi-level: a WARN_ON() increases it by +1, a kernel crash increases it
by +1000. ( That way i could run overnight tests that will only stop on
a kernel_is_buggy >= 1000 condition, while it could ignore simpler
WARN_ON()s. )
