fbmem: fix fb_info->lock and mm->mmap_sem circular locking dependency
Fix a circular locking dependency in the frame buffer console driver pushing down the mutex fb_info->lock. Circular locking dependecies occur calling the blocking fb_notifier_call_chain() with fb_info->lock held. Notifier callbacks can try to acquire mm->mmap_sem, while fb_mmap() acquires the locks in the reverse order mm->mmap_sem => fb_info->lock.
