Comment 1 Jeff Kirsher 2008-12-11 14:01:16 UTC
During a reset, releasing the swflag after it failed to be acquired would cause a double unlock of the mutex.  Instead, test whether acquisition of the swflag was successful and if not, do not release the swflag.  The reset must still be done to bring the device to a quiescent state.
