Subjectprintk: One small fixup for patch 5/8


this is a small fixup for the patch 5/8 (printk: Hand over printing to
console if printing too long) in my printk series. It fixes a bogus warning
on non-preemptible kernels. Please just fold it into that patch (I can
resend the patch or the series but I don't think that's necessary for such
a small fixup).
