This patch landed recently in linux-next as commit f5f022e53b87
("printk: reimplement log_cont using record extension"). I've noticed
that it causes a regression on my test system (ARM 32bit Samsung Exynos
4412-based Trats2 board). The messages are printed correctly on the
serial console during boot, but then when I run 'dmesg' command, the log
is truncated.

Here is are the last lines of the dmesg log after this patch:

[    6.649018] Waiting 2 sec before mounting root device...
[    6.766423] dwc2 12480000.hsotg: new device is high-speed

[    6.914217] dwc2 12480000.hsotg: new address 51
[    8.710351] RAMDISK: squashfs filesystem found at block 0

The corresponding dmesg lines before applying this patch:

...

I can provide a complete logs if that helps.
