This is the easiest place for it. However, it should be clear that in
the context of trace_console_rcuidle(), the message is not yet visible
to any readers. The message _will_ get committed and definitely _will_
become visible at some point. But it is not (yet) visible at _this_
point. Maybe that is OK for what it is being used for.

If trace_console_rcuidle() must be called at the point of visibility for
readers, it becomes more complicated.
