SubjectRe: [PATCH][ATM] use rtnl_{lock,unlock} during device operations (take 2)

You also have to wait for the already running
operations to finish, before you can allow the module to unload.

These things run under dev_base_lock, so either they find the device
or they don't, and since they hold a spinlock they can't preempt.
