* [PATCHv2] printk: queue wake_up_klogd irq_work only if per-CPU areas are ready

printk_deferred(), similarly to printk_safe/printk_nmi,
does not immediately attempt to print a new message on
the consoles, avoiding calls into non-reentrant kernel
paths, e.g. scheduler or timekeeping, which potentially
can deadlock the system. Those printk() flavors, instead,
rely on per-CPU flush irq_work to print messages from
safer contexts. For same reasons (recursive scheduler or
timekeeping calls) printk() uses per-CPU irq_work in
order to wake up user space syslog/kmsg readers.

However, only printk_safe/printk_nmi do make sure that
per-CPU areas have been initialised and that it's safe
to modify per-CPU irq_work. This means that, for instance,
should printk_deferred() be invoked "too early", that
is before per-CPU areas are initialised, printk_deferred()
will perform illegal per-CPU access.

Lech Perczak [0] reports that after commit 1b710b1b10ef
("char/random: silence a lockdep splat with printk()")
user-space syslog/kmsg readers are not able to read new
kernel messages. The reason is printk_deferred() being
called too early (as was pointed out by Petr and John).

Fix printk_deferred() and do not queue per-CPU irq_work
before per-CPU areas are initialized.
