This has always been unsafe. Its something I suggested was removed a
long time ago because the locking for it is unfixable.

Locking is fixed in ide-dev-2.6 tree
(at the moment seem to be dropped from -mm?).

[ the FIXME comment left in ide-proc.c is also applicable to
modprobe/rmmod case as the issue is not /proc/.../driver specific ]
