If a log record has LOG_PREFIX set, its predecessor record should be
terminated if it was marked LOG_CONT.

In devkmsg_read(), this condition was being ignored, which would
lead to such records showing up combined when reading /dev/kmsg.
Fix this oversight.

We should similarly insert a newline in msg_print_text() in this
case, to avoid formatted records getting merged.
