Subject: Re: [PATCH] printk: Monitor change of console loglevel.

Thanks for suggestion. I think that #ifdef'ing

  static bool suppress_message_printing(int level)
  {
  	return (level >= console_loglevel && !ignore_loglevel);
  }

is simpler. If the cause of unexpected change of console loglevel
turns out to be syz_execute_func(), we will want a config option
which controls suppress_message_printing() for syzbot. That option
would also be used for guarding printk("WARNING:" ...) users.

Well, syzbot does not want to use ignore_loglevel kernel command
line option because that option would generate too much output...

Do you mean doing e.g.

  #define pr_debug(fmt, ...) no_printk(KERN_DEBUG pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)

depending on the minimal console loglevel kernel config option? Then, OK.
But callers using e.g. printk(KERN_DEBUG ...) and printk(KERN_SOH "%u" ...)
will remain unfiltered...
