I have some concerns that it is completely fixed in your tree - there is still
a race - if hpsb_packet_received arrives before hosb_packet_sent then there is
a chance that the code will try to put the same packet in the completion queue
twice. With SVN tree it will cause kernel BUG in skb code, in BK tree kernel
will just oops.

I wonder what was the reason to convert the code to abuse skbs aside for using
skbs queues and their locking?

Anyway, below is a backport of my patch from SVN to BK tree, I would like to
know if it works for others...

IEEE1394: Make sure that a packet submitted into completion
queue just once; race between hpsb_packet_sent and
hpsb_packet_received
