console: use might_sleep in console_lock
Instead of BUG_ON(in_interrupt()), since that doesn't check for all the newfangled stuff like preempt. Note that this is valid since the console_sem is essentially used like a real mutex with only two twists: - we allow trylock from hardirq context - across suspend/resume we lock the logical console_lock, but drop the semaphore protecting the locking state. Now that doesn't guarantee that no one is playing tricks in single-thread atomic contexts at suspend/resume/boot time, but - I couldn't find anything suspicious with some grepping, - might_sleep shouldn't die, - and I think the upside of catching more potential issues is worth the risk of getting a might_sleep backtrace that would have been save (and then dealing with that fallout).
