Yanmin Zhang [Tue, 1 Nov 2011 00:11:27 +0000 (17:11 -0700)]
We are enabling some power features on medfield.  To test suspend-2-RAM
conveniently, we need turn on/off console_suspend_enabled frequently.

Add a module parameter, so users could change it by:
/sys/module/printk/parameters/console_suspend
