Subject[PATCH v5 0/2] printk: Console owner and waiter logic cleanup
This is the last version of Steven's console owner/waiter logic.
Plus my proposal to hide it into 3 helper functions. It is supposed
to keep the code maintenable.

The handshake really works. It happens about 10-times even during
boot of a simple system in qemu with a fast console here. It is
definitely able to avoid some softlockups. Let's see if it is
enough in practice.

From my point of view, it is ready to go into linux-next so that
it can get some more test coverage.

Steven's patch is the v4, see

Steven Rostedt (1):
printk: Add console owner and waiter logic to load balance console
