I've merged the new API to get and release the i2c_adapter mutex:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=afa08974fe80c198b8650f73ed8ab59135ca10d0

Ben, you can adjust your own patches to make use of this API instead of
accessing the i2c_adapter mutex directly. That way, you are no longer
dependent of implementation changes, and this should solve the conflict.

Stephen, you can then drop your fixup patch.

Thanks,

Jean Delvare
