Subject[RFC][PATCHv5 12/13] printk: do not cond_resched() when we can offload
Date
console_unlock() may sleep with console_sem locked, which is a bit
counter intuitive: we neither print pending logbuf messages to the
serial console, nor let anyone else to do it for us.

With printing offloading enabled, however, we can disable preemption,
because we know for sure how long we can stay in console_unlock() and
that eventually we will offload to another task.
