I've made me a module that does the above, I've also changed my .config
to match yours (smp=y, sched-cgroup=y, autogroup=n, preempt=n, no_hz=y),
but sadly I cannot reproduce, I get all 10k prints on my serial line.

Even without serial line it works (somehow booting without visible
console is scary as hell :)

Which makes me ask, how are you observing your console?

Because those 10k lines aren't even near the amount of crap a regular
boot spews out on this box, although I guess the tight loop might
generate it slightly faster than a regular boot does.
