> =======================

We seem to have made a mess in there. timer_list_show() ends up calling
lookup_module_symbol_name(), which takes a mutex. However print_symbol()
(which is called at oops time, interrupt time, etc) calls
module_address_lookup(), which is basically the same, only it doesn't take
the mutex.

I guess a quicky fix would be to switch
kernel/time/timer_list.c:print_name_offset() from
lookup_module_symbol_name() to module_address_lookup(). But we'd still
have a mess in there.

(adds ccs, runs away)
