    This is a initialization order problem then, because:
    arp_init
    neigh_table_init
    rwlock_init

    does the initialization already. So fix the initialization sequence
    of the qeth driver or you will have other problems.

    My impression was the -rt folks wanted all lock initializations t be
    done at runtime not compile time.
