I don't think they are fine, I just don't see bug reports
for them. At very least, I saw a same bug report for be2net too.

To reproduce this bug, we need to find some one calling printk()
within IRQ handler, which seems rare? It seems there are few
people using hpsa driver together with netconsole.
