SubjectRe: [PATCH] virt: kvm: arm: vgic: Return failure code '-EBUSY' when mutex_trylock() fails

I already sent a patch for the -EBUSY:

I don't like using the iterator variable for this kind of thing because
it can really break in languages where i is out-of-scope after the loop
and it is too easy to reuse the iterator variable in later versions of
the code.

That being said, the scanning once is slightly prettier I guess,
but I'd rather not introduce the churn unless others (Marc) think this
is a big win.
