Oops, sorry.  I think there's only one more case, it's just
embarrassingly close to the other one.

Subject: [PATCHv2] Input - keyboard: close race on vt-switch

A VT switch can theoretically change fg_console between

	vc = vc_cons[fg_console].d
and
	kbd = kbd_table + fg_console

Fix it by replacing the second fg_console with vc->vc_num.
