SubjectRe: more devfs fun (Piled Higher and Deeper)
devfs_rmdir() checks that directory is empty.  Then it calls
devfsd_notify_one(), which can block. Then it marks the entry
unregistered and reports success.

Guess what will happen if devfs_register() will happen at that

/me _seriously_ considers hostile takeover of the damn thing

I mean, when holes are found at that rate just by cursory look through
the code... And that stuff had been there for at least 2 years.
Richard, I hate to break it on you, but dealing with that crap is
generally considered a maintainer's job. And it is supposed to happen
slightly faster - 2 years would be bad even for MS. If you don't
have time for that work - say so and step down, nobody will blame
you for that. Repeating that everything will be fine RSN is getting
real old by now...
