kernel/printk/printk.c: In function console_unlock:
kernel/printk/printk.c:2419:11: warning: __builtin_memcpy writing 27 bytes into a region of size 0 overflows the destination [-Wstringop-overflow=]
len += sprintf(text + len,
"Replaying the entire log:\n");

because LOG_LINE_MAX=0 and PREFIX_MAX=0.

Which is interesting. The pre-existing

len = sprintf(text,
"** %llu printk messages dropped **\n",
log_first_seq - console_seq);

in console_unlock() has the same issue, but the compiler doesn't seem
to want to warn.

(Also, using sprintf() is a bit lame for the new message - could use

I'll drop the patch for now - we don't want that warning to come out.
console_unlock() needs some fixing for the CONFIG_PRINTK=n case.
