Re: [PATCH] netxen: Fix a sleep-in-atomic bug in netxen_nic_pci_mem_access_direct

We should probably add a might_sleep() to ioremap() to prevent these
bugs in the future.
This bug is eight years old. You can report it, but it's going to hard
to get anyone to fix it. I sometimes ignore ancient bugs. On the other
hand, netxen is fairly well supported so it doesn't hurt to try.
I try to report bugs as soon as they are introduced. I report it to
the author and CC the relevant list. If people don't respond to my
email after a month then I complain again.
