SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] arch: arm64: process: Unlock console after SMP stopped
I have observed this problem during reboot stress test on my ARM64
architecture board which is NVIDIA Tegra ARM64 CPU reference board.
The reboot stress test is to restart the system repeatedly for a long
time. The system is set with Kernel log level 8 for logging all kernel
messages during the tests.
I could see that sometimes latter part of the Kernel messages were
broken(or omitted).
So I have debugged this issue and made this patch.

The console_unlock() function emits all buffered messages in printk
log buffer prior to release the console lock.
This patch calls the console_unlock() after SMP stopped before
performing machine/architecture specific pm(reboot/power off) code.
This is to ensure no more additional messages from other process and
flush out all messages buffered in printk log buffer before the system
is restarted or power off.

> why this is only an ARM64 problem (or why you are only fixing this on ARM64 and not any of the other architectures.)
Honestly I am not sure that this issue is existing on other architectures.
Because my platform is ARM64 architecture and I have observed/verified
this problem with my patch on ARM64 only.

Thanks,
Jinyoung.
