What does this look like from a user perspective?  Does it fail every
time or does it only fail sometimes?

What's the bug exactly?

There is no Fixes tag...

There is a well known rule of thumb that when someone uses "volatile"
in the kernel it means there is a locking problem...  Is this __iomem or
something?

Is this cause by patch 1 changing the zalloc to regular alloc??  If so
then it should be folded into that patch instead of sent separately.
