NAME

       release_console_sem - unlock the console system

SYNOPSIS

       void release_console_sem  (void);

ARGUMENTS

       void   no arguments

DESCRIPTION

       Releases the semaphore which the caller holds on the console system and
       the console driver list.

       While the semaphore was held, console output may have been buffered  by
       printk. If this is the case, release_console_sem emits the output prior
       to releasing the semaphore.

       If there is output waiting for klogd, we wake it up.

        release_console_sem may be called from any context.
