    x86: remove printk() from init_timer()
    For console drivers which use udelay() we can deadlock
    in the printk path on the spinlock. The reason is that
    on the first call to udelay() from within a console driver
    it will go back down the printk() path deadlocking oneself.
    Just remove the printk() as it was asymmetric on romstage
    vs ramstage.
