    hwspinlock/core: use a mutex to protect the radix tree · 93b465c2
    Juan Gutierrez authored
    Since we're using non-atomic radix tree allocations, we
    should be protecting the tree using a mutex and not a
    Non-atomic allocations and process context locking is good enough,
    as the tree is manipulated only when locks are registered/
    The locks themselves are still protected by spinlocks of course,
    and mutexes are not involved in the locking/unlocking paths.
