    Just for the record: the "SMP race condition" argument given here is
    completely bogus. sleep_on_* is quite safe to use when the SMP races are
    being handled using the BKL, as is the case here.

    That said, I agree that the patch is of interest given the long term
    goal of removing the BKL completely. Perhaps you could therefore also
    amend your changelog entry text to reflect this motive?

    Cheers,
    Trond
