[PATCH] Linux-2.4.18 block MTD dead-lock

Below, David says, "wrong fix -- use the which is already in 2.4.19."

Could someone please summarize where I should look for that in the sense
that I want to get an isolated patch for it if possible?  I can't stably
bite off the full task of upgrading to 2.4.19, but would like to see the
diffs that were this fix.  Not even sure if they were in the MTD CVS or in
the main linux branch, else I guess I could look at a cvs diff.

Pointers appreciated, thx...

Wrong fix. Use the fix which is already in 2.4.19.
