SubjectRe: [patch 5/6] Convert to use mutexes instead of semaphores

Apparently I missed that several drivers also use bd->sem so they need
to be converted too... But what is it with the drivers:

static void aty128_bl_set_power(struct fb_info *info, int power)
info->bl_dev->props->power = power;

Why we are doing up() before down()??? And it is in almost every
driver that uses backlight... Do I need more coffee? [CC-ing bunch of
people trying to get an answer...]
