printk: fix discarding message when recursion_bug
Hiroshi Shimamoto [Fri, 19 Dec 2008 18:23:03 +0000 (10:23 -0800)]
Impact: fix truncated recursion bug message printout

When recursion_bug is true, kernel discards original message because printk_buf
contains recursion_bug_msg with NULL terminator. The sizeof(recursion_bug_msg)
makes this, use strlen() to get correct length without NULL terminator.
