Subject: [PATCH v3 3/3] printk: implement support for extended console drivers

>From a69336f8df52f9ccdf33dfb5410108eec4d27742 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

printk log_buf keeps various metadata for each message including its
sequence number and timestamp.  The metadata is currently available
only through /dev/kmsg and stripped out before passed onto console
drivers.  We want this metadata to be available to console drivers too
so that console consumers can get full information including the
metadata and dictionary, which among other things can be used to
detect whether messages got lost in transit.

This patch implements support for extended console drivers.  Consoles
can indicate that they want extended messages by setting the new
CON_EXTENDED flag and they'll be fed messages formatted the same way
as /dev/kmsg.

 "<level>,<sequnum>,<timestamp>,<contflag>;<message text>\n"

If extended consoles exist, in-kernel fragment assembly is disabled.
This ensures that all messages emitted to consoles have full metadata
including sequence number.  The contflag carries enough information to
reassemble the fragments from the reader side trivially.  Note that
this only affects /dev/kmsg.  Regular console and /proc/kmsg outputs
are not affected by this change.

* Extended message formatting for console drivers is enabled iff there
  are registered extended consoles.

* Comment describing /dev/kmsg message format updated to add missing
  contflag field and help distinguishing variable from verbatim terms.

v3: Added pr_info() to inform the user to expect more fragments when
    ext console is enabled.  Also, Documentation/ABI/testing/dev-kmsg
    is updated accordingly as suggested by Andrew.

v2: Disable in-kernel cont buffer if extended consoles are present
    which simplifies things quite a bit.  Hinted by Petr.
