No cigar yet. I tried davem's patch first, then yours on top of his. I still get
both the recursive locking and the kernel warning.

BTW, wireless doesn't work but if I plug in the wire, then networking is OK. It
seems to be in mac80211, which is strange because I routinely run the latest
wireless-testing kernel, and all the wireless bits should be there already.

I'm still plugging away at the bisection. I think I got away from the kernel
that won't build.
