SubjectRe: Linux-2.4.0-test10

From: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@mandrakesoft.com>

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 :-)
