Subject[PATCH 23/31] tty: fix console_sem lock order
Date
vgacon_do_font_op releases and reacquires the BTM while holding
console_sem. This violates the rule that BTM has to be the
outer lock whenever we hold both.

There does not seem to be any reason to give up the BTM here,
so just stop doing that.
