Subject[PATCH] init/main.c Enable watchdog_thresh control from kernel line
Both graphics and serial consoels are exposed to hard lockups
when handling a large amount of messaging. The kernel watchdog_thresh
parameter up to now has not been available to be set on the kernel line for
early boot.
This patch allows the setting of watchdog_thresh to be increased
when needed to avoid the hard lockups in the console code.
