SubjectRe: Bug report: A commit about serial8250 cause the output disorderly at the phase of startup

Yes, I am aware of the issue. It is actually a feature, not a bug. ;-)
Individual LOG_CONT messages, when classified as emergency messages, are
printed immediately to the console. This makes them appear
"disorderly". It is not yet clear how best to deal with LOG_CONT
emergency messages. But I suppose we should introduce a config option to
disable atomic consoles altogether if users preferred buffered/delayed
printk output.
