kdb: Avoid printing KERN_ levels to consolesdev/kdb_no_log_levels
Currently when kdb traps printk messages then the raw log level prefix (consisting of '\001' followed by a numeral) does not get stripped off before the message is issued to the various I/O handlers supported by kdb. This causes annoying visual noise as well as causing problems grepping for ^. It is also a change of behaviour compared to normal usage of printk() usage. For example <SysRq>-h ends up with different output to that of kdb's "sr h". This patch addresses the problem by stripping log levels from messages before they are issued to the I/O handlers. printk() which can also act as an i/o handler in some cases is special cased; if the caller provided a log level then the prefix will be preserved when sent to printk(). The addition of non-printable characters to the output of kdb commands is a regression, albeit and extremely elderly one, introduced by commit 04d2c8c83d0e ("printk: convert the format for KERN_<LEVEL> to a 2 byte pattern"). Note also that this patch does *not* restore the original behaviour from v3.5. Instead it makes printk() from within a kdb command display the message without any prefix (i.e. like printk() normally does).
