More affected drivers:

agp_ioctl() doing usercopy under agp_fe.agp_mutex
agp_mmap() taking agp_fe.agp_mutex under mmap_sem

dv1394_write() doing usercopy under video->mtx
dv1394_mmap() taking video->mtx under mmap_sem

raw1394_ioctl() doing usercopy under fi->state_mutex
raw1394_mmap() taking fi->state_mutex under mmap_sem
