This is a bit of a problem, as it's called in_atomic context and kmalloc's
under GFP_KERNEL (which can sleep.) This results in sleep-under-spinlock

I spent a bit of time thinking about how to fix that, but it's a bit
difficult because of the nested spin_lock_irq in that bit of the
tty_ioctl callchain.

I'll think about it some more tonight and follow-up if I can think of a
way to fix it.

regards, Kyle
