SysRq messages are stored directly into the main log buffer.

The limited per-CPU buffers are needed only in printk_safe
and NMI context. We discussed it here because KERN_UNSUPPRESSED
allows to pass the information even from this context.

We could set this context in printk_context per-CPU variable.

Then we could easily add the set per-message flag in
vprintk_store() for the normal/atomic context. And we
could store an extra KERN_UNSUPPRESSED in printk_safe_log_store()
for printk_safe and NMI context.

Best Regards,
