[PATCH] kobj_map semaphore to mutex conversion
Convert the kobj_map code to use a mutex instead of a semaphore. It converts the single two users as well, genhd.c and char_dev.c. Signed-off-by: Jes Sorensen <jes@sgi.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
