SubjectRe: [PATCH -next 11/27] tty: Don't release tty locks for wait queue sanity check

It disables interrupts so that the chance of the oops getting out is
maximised, it locks down some of the other bits to try and stop
interleaved oopses producing garbage when say a 16 way server goes pop and
all the cpus oops at once.

Not sure about the migration 8)
