    I think you really meant: "Use mutex instead of binary semaphore in
    idt77252 driver", since this is a binary semaphore (not a mutex,
    which are always binary):
    > - struct semaphore mutex;

    and this is a mutex, not a spinlock:
    > + struct mutex mutex;

    Everything else looks good though

    Cheers,
