    This patch is against 2.6.35 which moved BKL from core to drivers so
    that maintainers could take action.
    Actually due to lack of action from memstick maintainers, this patch
    doesn't apply to mainline as now BKL is replaced with yet another
    unnecessary mutex.
    I have a patch to remove it.

    Best regards,
    Maxim Levitsky
