[PATCH] add ignore_loglevel boot option
Sometimes the kernel prints something interesting while userspace bootup keeps messages turned off via loglevel. Enable the printing of /all/ kernel messages via the "ignore_loglevel" boot option. Off by default. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
