This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.36. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Still happens with 2.6.37-rc2-git4.
Still happens with 2.6.37-rc5.
Still happens on 2.6.37-rc7.
I cannot reproduce this problem on 2.6.38-rc3. Nothing has
changed in the driver source code AFAICT: drivers/spi/spi_lm70llp.c
has not been updated since June 30, 2010.
Please close this bug report.
This looks like some race condition (the dmesg is all messed up...)
Probably somewhere a missing locking. Maybe some fallout of bkl removal?
I'm closing it as unreproducible for now.
