3.5.7.7 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Alan Cox <alan@linux.intel.com>

commit 50e244cc793d511b86adea24972f3a7264cae114 upstream.

Adjust the console layer to allow a take over call where the caller
already holds the locks.  Make the fb layer lock in order.

This is partly a band aid, the fb layer is terminally confused about the
locking rules it uses for its notifiers it seems.
