Ingo's patch was just probably just misplaced, I'd rather that we
resubmit it than put back smp_lock.h

Plus I have a follow-up one that converts nvram_ioctl to unlocked_ioctl.

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] nvram: Drop the BKL from nvram_open()

It's safe to remove the BKL from nvram_open(): there's no open()
versus read() races: nvram_init() is very simple and race-free,
it registers the device then puts it into /proc - there's no
state init to race with.

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] nvram: Convert nvram_ioctl to unlocked_ioctl

After removing the BKL from open, we can also convert nvram_ioctl to
an unlocked_ioctl. It has it's own spin_lock, and doesn't rely on the BKL
