Subject[PATCH 10/18] uml: kill big kernel lock
Date
Three uml device drivers still use the big kernel lock,
but all of them can be safely converted to using
a per-driver mutex instead. Most likely this is not
even necessary, so after further review these can
and should be removed as well.

The exec system call no longer requires the BKL either,
so remove it from there, too.
