SubjectRe: [PATCH][2.5] convert atm_dev_lock from spinlock to semaphore

you seem to be under the impression that <linux/sem.h> has something
to do with linux semaphores. this is not the case; they're sysv semaphores.

apart from this, i think it's a pretty bad idea to just replace the
spinlocks with semaphores. atm really needs fixing properly.
