Subject[PATCH] vt: try harder to print output when panicing
At panic time (i.e. when oops_in_progress is set) we should try a bit
harder to update the screen and make sure output gets to the VT, since
some drivers are capable of flipping back to it.

So make sure we try to unblank and update the display if called from a
panic context.
