Has this been tested with scheduling while atomic checking
(CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP) or lockdep (CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING)? ARM would
call this with irqs disabled and blocking_notifier_call_chain() would
spit out a warning when it tries to down_read() on it's semaphore. This
should probably be an atomic notifier chain instead.
