Subject: Kernel printf Question

Does anybody know if there's a way to prevent kernel printf's from using
The console output routines? Maybe there is a Flag somewhere to indicate
that the console grf device is currently used otherwise?

The actual problem is, that every kernel printf corrupts the display of 
the Xserver. I just finished a console driver and a blitter-supporting 
Xserver for the CV64, and that's the last problem (I know of :-).

Another question: Is it possible to insert an console reinit at the point 
where the debugger is entered? Or is the system already too corrupted at 
that time? In the current implementation there is no way to read anything
the debugger writes into the X display.

Thanks, Michael
