    You can find tons of examples (several of them patches by Al Viro to fix them) by
    searching with google with keywords like "devfs races". The "should fix" list
    ( has this:

    hch: devfs: there's a fundamental lookup vs devfsd race that's only
    fixable by introducing a lookup vs devfs deadlock. I can't see how this is
    fixable without getting rid of the current devfsd design. Mandrake seems
    to have a workaround for this so this is at least not triggered so easily,
    but that's not what I'd consider a fix..
