Not really harmful not to, but also not harm in grabbing the lock. And
this shuts up a new WARNING I introduced in commit ddde3c18b700 ("vt:
More locking checks").

Hi Daniel.

Patch looks good. You can add my:
Acked-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

For good measure I checked all other users of con_is_bound()
and they looked good from a locking perspective.
Then I looked a bit more for missing locking and lost
the overview.

Maybe add the warning that Jens reported to the changelog, in case
someone hits something that looks like this warning.
Mainly for google fodder, but also in case changelogs are searched.

Thank you for the quick fix! Looks fine to me. Did test with cat as well 
as our dump2tar utility. The warning is gone.

Hi Greg,

Do you plan to pick this up in your console/vt/whatever-fixes branch?
There's no reason for me to route this through drm-fixes.
