    ratelimit: extend to print suppressed messages on release · 6b1d174b
    Borislav Petkov authored
    Extend the ratelimiting facility to print the amount of suppressed lines
    when it is being released.
    
    This use case is aimed at short-termed, burst-like users for which we
    want to output the suppressed lines stats only once, after it has been
    disposed of.  For an example, see /dev/kmsg usage in a follow-on patch.
    
    Also, change the printk() line we issue on release to not use
    "callbacks" as it is misleading: we're not suppressing callbacks but
    printk() calls.
    
    This has been separated from a previous patch by Linus.
