After succesfully hanging my machine several dozen time at this stage I've a
question. I'm playing with a PCI Development board at the moment, and for the
board I maintain "board" struct which I pass around a pointer to in the
file->private_data pointer thus maintaining state information. I have several
buffers and variables which I will be accessing from bottom_half handlers and
these can also be accessed from the device driver_write/read functions... what
is the best way to protect these buffers...
