Subject[BUG] sg.c: sleeping function called from invalid context
Date
	KERNEL_VERSION: 2.6.31
DESCRIBE:
Driver sg.c might sleep in atomic context, because it calls
scsi_device_put under lock_kernel.

/drivers/scsi/sg.c:306:
static int
sg_open(struct inode *inode, struct file *filp)
{
...
lock_kernel();
...
error_out:
if (retval)
scsi_device_put(sdp->device);
...
Path to might_sleep macro from scsi_device_put:
1. scsi_device_put calls put_device at ./drivers/scsi/scsi.c:1111
2. put_device calls kobject_put at ./drivers/base/core.c:1038
3. kobject_put calls kref_put at ./lib/kobject.c
4. kref_put may call callback function kobject_release at ./lib/kref.c if
refcount becomes zero, which might_sleep because it calls user event. Details:
5.1 kobject_cleanup calls kobject_uevent at ./lib/kobject.c:555
5.2 kobject_uevent calls kobject_uevent_env at ./lib/kobject_uevent.c:282
5.3 kobject_uevent_env calls call_usermodehelper_exec at
include/linux/kmod.h:83
5.4 call_usermodehelper_exec calls wait_for_completion at ./kernel/kmod.c:481
5.5 wait_for_completion calls wait_for_common at ./kernel/sched.c:5710
5.6 wait_for_common calls might_sleep at ./kernels/sched.c:5692
