I got the following when I pulled my smartcard out of my laptop.

[ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
tifm/0/898 is trying to release lock (&fm->lock) at:
[<f9185933>] tifm_7xx1_switch_media+0x2e9/0x326 [tifm_7xx1]
but there are no more locks to release!

other info that might help us debug this:
no locks held by tifm/0/898.
