[coffee slowly kicking in it seems]

Locking at __up_console_sem in printk.c, we already do this. I get a
bit a feeling that the 2nd attempt in this saga (pulling the
wake_up_process out from under semaphore.lock spinlock of the
console_lock) is all we really need, since the more direct recursion
that Petr pointed out is already handled with printk_safe_enter/exit
around the up().

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10930673/ for reference that
approach, in case it's lost in your inbox.

Cheers, Daniel
