    You may _never_ under any circumstances sleep outside of process context
    (when int_count is non-zero on 2.0 or in_interrupt() returns true in 2.2).
    Sleeping includes the forceful act of sleeping (ex. schedule()) and
    anything that has the potential to sleep, such as non-atomic memory
    allocation.

    You will need to find a different way to accomplish what you are trying to
    do. If you need to perform an action at a later point, you can try a
    kernel timer. If you only need to wait for a minute amount of time, you
    can busy wait (such as udelay).
