Thanks for checking. I had actually noticed that patch (I searched
the mailing lists for the short git hash of the commit that broke me
and found it) and had decided it wouldn't fix my problems.
Specifically I think it could only possibly fix things if the function
show_bind() was somewhere in my stack trace. ...and it isn't.

...but after your message I decided to be extra super sure. I tried:

1. Going back to mainline commit 6789f873ed37 ("Merge tag 'pm-5.3-rc2'
of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm") and
picking commit 61d51456f357 ("vt: Grab console_lock around
con_is_bound in show_bind") from linuxnext. It didn't fix my problem.

2. Going to next-20190726. It didn't fix my problem.

...so indeed my patch addresses a different issue than the one you
pointed to, even if both fix problems introduced by the same commit.


Thanks!

-Doug
