SubjectRe: catch 22 - porting net driver from 2.2 to 2.4
do_ioctl is inside rtnl_lock...

Remember if you need to alter the rules, you can always queue work in
the current context, and have a kernel thread handle the work. The nice
thing about a kernel thread is that you start with a [almost] clean
state, when it comes to locks.
