Yeah and that should go into it's own patch.

Yeah, that was a long discussion with a lot of lockdep false positives.
I believe I have made it clear that the console code shouldn't depend on
memory allocation because that is just too fragile. If that is not
possible for some reason then it has to be mentioned in the changelog.
I really do not want us to add kludges to the MM code just because of
printk deficiencies unless that is absolutely inevitable.
