    ve/printk: add ve_log_printk() for log in !current->task_ve
    Patchset description:
    iptables LOG in CT
    With these patches, iptables LOG is printed into CT's dmesg buffer.
    Yet it doesn't show in /var/log/messages and I believe the reason
    is the absence of /dev/kmsg in CT (and rsyslog doesn't do redirection
    for log entries thou). Dev kmsg is virtualized, so looks like nothing
    prevents adding it to libvzctl list of devtmpfs devices:
    Also it should fix follow-log for `dmesg -w`.
    These patches make iptables LOG visible in CT's `dmesg`.

      netfilter: rectify nflog inside CT
      netfilter: rectify ebtlog inside CT
    This patch description:
    In some places we want to log into non-current VE.
    So here is ve_log_printk(), which prints message from any printk-valid
    context to other VE's buffer.
    This changes current behavior a little as erstwhile we've logged only
    into current VE's buffer, but looking at __vprintk_emit()'s locks it
    should be safe (but still little dangerous as it introduces new, untested
    previously call-path).
