    Subject[PATCH 0/6] Remove tty_lock from the console drivers
    This needs a fair bit of testing and a bit of review wouldn't go amiss, but
    it does drive the tty_lock() mess out of the console and correct chunks of
    console locking in the process.


    Alan Cox (6):
    vt: push the tty_lock down into the map handling
    vt: tackle the main part of the selection logic
    vt: waitevent is self locked so drop the tty_lock
    vt: push down tioclinux cases
    vt: push down the tty lock so we can see what is left to tackle
    vt: sort out locking for font handling
