Subject[PATCH] printk: Monitor change of console loglevel.
Date
We are seeing syzbot reports [1] where printk() messages prior to panic()
are missing for unknown reason. To test whether it is due to some testcase
changing console loglevel, let's panic() as soon as console loglevel has
changed. This patch is intended for testing on linux-next.git only, and
will be removed after we found what is wrong.
