printk: add module parameter ignore_loglevel to control ignore_loglevel
Yanmin Zhang [Tue, 1 Nov 2011 00:11:25 +0000 (17:11 -0700)]
We are enabling some power features on medfield.  To test suspend-2-RAM
conveniently, we need turn on/off ignore_loglevel frequently without
rebooting.

Add a module parameter, so users can change it by:
/sys/module/printk/parameters/ignore_loglevel
