      drivers: autoconvert trivial BKL users to private mutex · 613655fa
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      All these files use the big kernel lock in a trivial
      way to serialize their private file operations,
      typically resulting from an earlier semi-automatic
      pushdown from VFS.
      
      None of these drivers appears to want to lock against
      other code, and they all use the BKL as the top-level
      lock in their file operations, meaning that there
      is no lock-order inversion problem.
      
      Consequently, we can remove the BKL completely,
      replacing it with a per-file mutex in every case.
      Using a scripted approach means we can avoid
      typos.
      
      These drivers do not seem to be under active
      maintainance from my brief investigation. Apologies
      to those maintainers that I have missed.
