SubjectRe: [announce] "kill the Big Kernel Lock (BKL)" tree
Out of amusement I took the watchdog drivers and started looking for
large cans of worms in the BKL drop arena.

Here is a fun one for general discussion - right now driver probe
functions request resources. We have no ordering on the requests so we
have deadlocks if two drivers do resource requests for conflicting
resources in reverse order.
