    you're totally right. like in another patch i sent at the same time i
    messed up the description. as you point out it should read "Use mutex
    instead of binary semaphore in idt77252 driver". in the last days i
    reported some spinlock related bugs, i suppose that made me write
    spinlock instead of mutex ...

    thanks for your comments
