Subject: [PATCH UPDATED] printk: fix possible printk buffer overrun introduced
 with recursion check

printk recursion detection prepends message to printk_buf and offsets
printk_buf when actual message is printed but it forgets to trim
buffer length accordingly.  This can result in buffer overrun in
extreme cases.  Fix it.
