Self-nack, I accidentally still had the revert of commit
375899cddcbb ("printk: make sure to print log on console.") in
my tree while testing…

In order for my approach to work, we need to deal with the quiet
option even earlier, before the first pr_notice in init/main.c,
which requires access to the commandline before setup_arch()
which is the function which fills the boot_command_line on
several architectures.

So I think we need to look at a different approach.

I have one more idea, if that does not work out I think we
just need to revert 375899cddcbb ("printk: make sure to print log on console.")

Regards,

Hans
