Hi, thanks for the patch. However I decided to implement it in a different way 
so that the IRQ mode is still preserved. I've converted it to use read/write 
spinlocks instead of semaphores since they are usable from within an 
interrupt context. Let me know if this causes any problems and I'll fix them.
