This should now read:
o unsafe sleep_on in ibmcam, ov511, plusb and uss720

Sorry for stating differently before. Problems in the plusb and uss720

Again, what does this refer to? What functions, and in what files? There
is no usbpl_ functions and I can't find any past references to them.
Does anyone know what this means?

If not, I guess it isn't a problem :)
