BKL was replaced by sr_mutex in 2.6.37-rc1.

Wakko, you could try the patch from the mentioned thread and see whether
it fixes your problem. But be aware that the patch opens possible race

applications vs. udisks-daemon. (I haven't noticed anything bad during the
period of using the patch though.)
