Subject[PATCH 5.0 198/238] vt: perform safe console erase in the right order
Date
5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Nicolas Pitre <nicolas.pitre@linaro.org>

commit a6dbe442755999960ca54a9b8ecfd9606be0ea75 upstream.

Commit 4b4ecd9cb853 ("vt: Perform safe console erase only once") removed
what appeared to be an extra call to scr_memsetw(). This missed the fact
that set_origin() must be called before clearing the screen otherwise
old screen content gets restored on the screen when using vgacon. Let's
fix that by moving all the scrollback handling to flush_scrollback()
where it logically belongs, and invoking it before the actual screen
clearing in csi_J(), making the code simpler in the end.
