    Andre - the PCI probe fixes which this is about is something I wrote.
    The other locking stuff which is unrelated to this discussion is your
    code but thats not Im talking about - OK.

    That patch is wrong by the way because I made a mistake in 2.4. Your PCI
    config locking should be using pci_config lock not io_request. I'll fix
    the 2.4 tree in a bit now I've tidied up the 2.5 version.
