    Therefore for 2.4.x, our concern is whether a particular net driver
    needs further SMP protection internally, or if rtnl_lock (a semaphore,
    not a spinlock) is sufficient.

    Thanks Jeff, this is precisely what Alexey and myself have been trying
    to beat into Andi's head for months now :-)
