Subject[PATCH] x86/setup: Deal with "quiet" commandline option earlier
X86's setup_arch() calls parse_early_param() somewhat late, to make
sure that everything is setup correcty to deal with earlyprintk over
the EHCI debug port.

This means that a number of pr_info-s get done before
"early_param("quiet", quiet_kernel)" from init/main.c gets processed.

Until commit 375899cddcbb ("printk: make sure to print log on console.")
this was not a problem because the printk code would evaluate the
console_loglevel vs the message-loglevel when flushing the buffer.

After this commit the check is done at the time that pr_info is actually
called and the console_loglevel at calling time.

This causes the following messages to get printed with the "quiet" option:

[ 0.000000] BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000000000000-0x0000000000057fff] usable
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000100000000-0x0000000874ffffff] usable

This commit fixes this by making x86's setup_arch() explicitly check for
quiet early on.
