Yes, sorry for not mentioning.

I looked at it again, but gave up after a while, I am not able
to provide a safe .30 fix for that, risk of making things worse
is too high...
My last thought was that the main culprit is that .governor() should
always be called with the rwsem held. I look at it further and try
to ease up things for future kernels, but can't spent that much
time on it currently.
