Subject[PATCH] parport: make lockdep happy with waitlist_lock
Date
parport_unregister_device should never be used when interrupts are
enabled in hardware and irq handler is registered so there is no need
to disable interrupts when using waitlist_lock. But there is no way to
explain this subtle semantics to lockdep analyzer. So disable interrupts
here too to simplify things. The price is negligible.
