printk: flush conflicting continuation line
An earlier newline was missing and current print is from different task. In this scenario flush the continuation line and store this line seperatly. This patch fix the below scenario of timestamp interleaving, [ 28.154370 ] read_word_reg : reg[0x 3], reg[0x 4] data [0x 642] [ 28.155428 ] uart disconnect [ 31.947341 ] dvfs[cpufreq.c<275>]:plug-in cpu<1> done [ 28.155445 ] UART detached : send switch state 201 [ 32.014112 ] read_reg : reg[0x 3] data[0x21] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: simplify and condense the code] Signed-off-by: Arun KS <getarunks@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Arun KS <arun.ks@broadcom.com> Cc: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com> Cc: Kay Sievers <kay@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
