Ah, sorry, I didn't get that from cli-sti-removal.txt. Actually it
looks like cli-sti-removal.txt is a bit wrong, as there is no
local_irq_save_off() function. I'll send a patch for that next.

This is _only_ a guess, as I do not know this hardware or driver at all,
but this function is only called at device init time (from the PCI probe
function), so I don't think anything else is going on in the driver at
the same time to warrent SMP locking. It also looks like this is done
to determine the "clocking" of the device, so interrupts need to be off
for the CPU doing the determination.

But again, this is only a guess from glancing at the code for a very
short time, and I should probably start using the ALSA version of this
driver anyway :)

Here's a patch with the extra local_irq_disable() call removed.

thanks,

greg k-h
