Looks useful to me.
What would be the best way to make these per-console loglevels
configurable at runtime? `dmesg -n $LEVEL` only affects the global
limit.

One drawback to letting global loglevel have precedence is that
all consoles that should not get detailed log messages need to have
their loglevel explicitly lowered and it's not possible to have
one console forced to show more than the global loglevel.


An approach I would prefer is to have all consoles follow global
loglevel except when something different had been explicitly requested
for them.
This way a single console can be added later on (e.g. netconsole)
and set to pass through debug messages without affecting anyone else.
