Yes, let's not make a mountain out of a molehill.

Someone sent me a patch documenting the illogic of down_trylock(). I decided
to try to fix it rather than just bitch and moan.

Kernel coding involves occasionally getting fed a Linus-special shit sandwich
rant. I've long given up expecting a polite "No; please just replace them
all with mutexes" one-liner. I might have actually been shocked into doing
it.

Consider the patches forgotten,
Rusty.
