    SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] via-rhine: Fix hanging with high CPU load on low-end broads.

    You are running with CONFIG_PM disabled and a down / up loop will not
    work. The patch below should hide the latter, at least as long as the
    relevant workqueue does not stall for too long... Extra cancel_work in
    task_enable could work too but it will look strange.

    Thanks for testing.
