IMHO lockdep found that two locks are taken in different order:

-> #1: 1) tty_mutex in con_console() 2) dqptr_sem (somewhere later)
-> #0: 1) dqptr_sem 2) tty_console in dquot_alloc_space() with print_warning()

Probably print_warning() and flush_warnings() should be reworked
to do printing without dqptr_sem or locking order should be changed.
I hope somebody from this CC can work it out better.

Jarek P.
