Hi Gene,

Looks like the author hasn't run with CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK_SLEEP, as
its a problem with the patch against 2.6.37-rc2 as well (it's doing
kmalloc with irqs disabled.)

I'll let you know if there's a fix, it's not straightforward. (The
message should be fairly harmless though, just a nuisance.)

regards, Kyle
