Hi,

it exist some macros to access the IER and ISR registers of the SAA7146. This macros are using a read and a write
operation and this macros are executed inside of the interrupt handler of the SAA7146 and outside of it. It exist a
reentrant problem. The interrupt handler may intercept the execution of such a macro and may also access the IER and/or
ISR registers. The access to the IER and ISR register must be protect by a locking primitive. The attached patch does
fix this problem.

The patch does not fix the stradis driver. This driver has the same problem.
