Yeah, I understand your example from the commit message. What I said was
"the patch does not fully address the problem". One way or another we still
can miss logs due to the very same problem: either console_loglevel
manipulation on another CPU, or printk_safe(), etc. May be there other
scenarios that are broken.

So if we are going to apply the patch [I don't have real objections, and
Petr seems to be fine], then I'd probably ask for a better commit messages.
Namely, I really want to document cases that are not addressed and are
still known to be broken.
