As a follow-up to the discussion started in [*], I would like to stress
once again that it is extremely convenient to have the context of the
console drivers detached from the printk callers, particularly to
mitigate the issue described in [*].

I gave the test module from this series a try, by running it overnight
on R-Car H3ULCB, and spotted no issues whatsoever. I won't post any
signatures, as this is RFC, but I would be willing to do so for any
upcoming non-RFC series. Looking forward to that!
