Which brings me to a question - what are those messages/channels?
Not important enough to be printed on consoles immediately, yet important
enough to pass the suppress_message_printing() check. We may wave those
semi-important messages good bye, I'm afraid, preemptible printk will
take care of it.

So... do we have a case here? Do we really need printk-kthread?
