[PATCH 2/2] printk: wake up klogd in vprintk_emit




We wake up klogd very late - only when current console_sem owner
is done pushing pending kernel messages to the serial/net consoles.
In some cases this results in lost syslog messages, because kernel
log buffer is a circular buffer and if we don't wakeup syslog long
enough there are chances that logbuf simply will wrap around.

The patch moves the klog wake up call to vprintk_emit(), which is
the only legit way for a kernel message to appear in the logbuf,
right before we attempt to grab the console_sem (possibly spinning
on it waiting for the hand off) and call console drivers.
