  Turn console printf buffering into a kernel option and only on
  by default for sun4v where it is absolutely required.
  This change moves the buffer from struct pcpu to the stack to avoid
  using the critical section which created a LOR in a couple of cases
  due to interaction with the tty code and kqueue. The LOR can't be
  fixed with the critical section and the pcpu buffer can't be used
  without the critical section.
  Putting the buffer on the stack was my initial solution, but it was
  pointed out that the stress on the stack might cause problems
  depending on the call path. We don't have a way of creating tests
  for those possible cases, so it's best to leave this as an option
  for the time being. In time we may get enough data to enable this
  option more generally.
