printk: Implement some unlocked kmsg_dump functions
If used from KDB, the locked variants are prone to deadlocks (suppose we got to the debugger w/ the logbuf lock held). So, we have to implement a few routines that grab no logbuf lock. Yet we don't need these functions in modules, so we don't export them. Signed-off-by: Anton Vorontsov <anton.vorontsov@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
