debug is exactly the loglevel where registry content and backtrace
might be very useful. It is not always important to reach the console.

IMHO, we should distinguish warning, error, crit, alert, emerg
situations. Backtraces and any related messages should be
filtered the same way. Any information might be useless without
the context.

I agree that it is complicated to pass the loglevel as
a parameter. It would be better define the default
log level for a given code section. It might be stored
in task_struct for the normal context and in per-CPU
variables for interrupt contexts.
