x86: add missing const qualifiers for log_lvl
Currently, the log-level of show_stack() depends on a platform realization. It creates situations where the headers are printed with lower log level or higher than the stacktrace (depending on a platform or user). Furthermore, it forces the logic decision from user to an architecture side. In result, some users as sysrq/kdb/etc are doing tricks with temporary rising console_loglevel while printing their messages. And in result it not only may print unwanted messages from other CPUs, but also omit printing at all in the unlucky case where the printk() was deferred. Introducing log-level parameter and KERN_UNSUPPRESSED [1] seems an easier approach than introducing more printk buffers. Also, it will consolidate printings with headers. Keep log_lvl const show_trace_log_lvl() and printk_stack_address() as the new generic show_stack_loglvl() wants to have a proper const qualifier. And gcc rightfully produces warnings in case it's not keept: arch/x86/kernel/dumpstack.c: In function `show_stack': arch/x86/kernel/dumpstack.c:294:37: warning: passing argument 4 of `show_trace_log_lv ' discards `const' qualifier from pointer target type [-Wdiscarded-qualifiers] 294 | show_trace_log_lvl(task, NULL, sp, loglvl); | ^~~~~~ arch/x86/kernel/dumpstack.c:163:32: note: expected `char *' but argument is of type `const char *' 163 | unsigned long *stack, char *log_lvl) | ~~~~~~^~~~~~~ [1]: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190528002412.1625-1-dima@arista.com/T/#u Signed-off-by: Dmitry Safonov <dima@arista.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Cc: Borislav Petkov <bp@alien8.de> Cc: "H.
