Ok.

I'm fairly sure this is happening. Try repeatedly tapping arrow-down
while booting (I suggest a VM) and you won't be able to login at tty1
(ie, text mode). Repeatable 1 time in 5 or so.

FWIW, I don't agree that the best way is to flush the flip buffers. Why
buffer and then schedule the cpu to do work which we already know it
can't do and which we're going to discard anyway?

In any event, since -next is already carrying these patches, and
by-design, these patches _expect_ the tty to be NULL, are you going to
remove the warning in flush_to_ldisc() or shall I?

Regards,
Peter Hurley
