So long as they compile out to nothingness for all the systems where this
stuff is useless (ie most of them because they are embedded or phones
etc) I don't see a big problem.

Note however if you trip one of those in any code with the console lock
held and your log goes to the consoles due to printk level or similar
you'll probably hang the box.

There are some other lock sequences that are going to do that too, so it
can't be placed arbitarily but will need the locking assumptions for each
non-obvious one documented clearly.
