Okay, just pull the cable from one slave or both slaves.

No, it's a debugging patch, otherwise I couldn't see anything on
serial console when it deadlocks or to keep testing it. :)

Yeah, the first problem can help to trigger this.
The spinlock target_list_lock in write_msg() seems to serialize
this, but I'm not sure yet if the queue will always be empty by
the time another call to write_msg() is made because the
netpoll_send_skb() will queue the packet if it fails to send.
