The cafe_ccic (OLPC) camera driver uses a tasklet to move frames out of
the DMA buffers in the streaming I/O path. With this change in place,
I'd worry that the possibility of dropping frames would increase,
especially considering that (1) this is running on OLPC hardware, and
(2) there is typically a streaming video application running in user
space.

Obviously some testing is called for here. I will make an attempt to do
that testing, but the next few weeks involve some insane travel which
will make that hard. Stay tuned.

Thanks,

jon
