[PATCH] usblcd: Push down BKL into driver

From: Alan Cox
Date: Thu May 22 2008 - 17:20:51 EST

I'm pretty sure this can be eliminated however I couldn't prove (or find)
what stopped the device vanishing mid IOCTL_GET_HARD_VERSION. Perhaps a
USB wizard could double check that and see if the lock_kernel can go
