[RESEND PATCH v2] ttyprintk: make the printk log level configurable




For some use cases it is handy to use a different printk log level than the
default (info) for the messages written to ttyprintk, so add a Kconfig
option similar to what we have for default console loglevel.

Changes since v1:
- Leave [U] prefix in printk invocation and drop space before it as
  suggested by Joe Perces.
