    Subject[patch 23/35] vt_ioctl: fix lock imbalance
    2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    ------------------

    From: Jiri Slaby <jirislaby@gmail.com>

    commit a115902f67ef51fbbe83e214fb761aaa9734c1ce upstream.

    Don't return from switch/case directly in vt_ioctl. Set ret and break
    instead so that we unlock BKL.
