just an idea,

how about doing it a bit differently?


move printk_nmi_flush_on_panic() to printk.c, and place it next to
printk_flush_on_panic() (so we will have two printk "flush-on-panic"
functions sitting together). /* printk_nmi_flush() is in printk.h,
so it's visible to printk anyway */

it also will let us keep logbuf_lock static, it's a bit too internal
to printk to expose it, I think.


IOW, something like this?
