Actually, this looks like a latent bug in sc92031.  It's calling
spin_lock in the dev->open function on a lock that's held in BH
context.

[SC92031]: Fix priv->lock context

The spin_lock calls made in dev->open and dev->close must disable
BH since open/close are made in process context.  Conversely, the
call in dev->hard_start_xmit does not need to disable BH since it
is already executing with BH disabled.
