Subject[PATCH 2/2] printk: Make the console flush configurable in hotplug path
Date
From: Mohammed Khajapasha <mkhaja@codeaurora.org>

The thread which initiates the hot plug can get scheduled
out, while trying to acquire the console lock,
thus increasing the hot plug latency. This option
allows to selectively disable the console flush and
in turn reduce the hot plug latency.
