    JFFS forgets to drop a kernel lock it grabs in the garbage collecting 
thread when that thread is killed by jffs_put_user(). This causes a couple of 
BUG messages and a call trace to be printed out on unmounting JFFS with the 
alternate spinlock implemetation which checks for the kernel lock state
