Subject: [PATCH 2/2] printk: always report lost messages on serial console

The "printk messages dropped" report is 'attached' to a kernel
message located at console_idx offset. This does not work well
if we skip that message due to loglevel filtering, because in
this case we also skip/lose dropped message report.

Disable suppress_message_printing() loglevel filtering if we
must report "printk messages dropped" condition.
