An obvious one is in the above link. Just replace the trace in #1 above with
printk() from anywhere, i.e., just ignore the early boot calls there as they are
not important.

printk()
console_unlock()
console_lock_spinning_enable() --> console_owner_lock
call_console_drivers()
serial8250_console_write() --> port->lock
