Subject: [PATCH v3 1/7] printk: report dropped messages on separate line

It is possible for the log to be filled too quickly for the consoles
to be able to keep up.  This is detected in console_unlock(), and
when it occurs, a message is printed on the console.  When reviewing
some nearby code, Petr Mládek suggested it might be nicer if this
message were placed on a separate line.  This patch implements that
suggestion.
