Subject: Re: [1/4] bonding: don't call slave_xxx_netpoll under spinlocks

I don't really see how it may sleep, it was specifically changed to not
sleep actually. However, see below...

Yep, as far as I see there's really no need to take the lock, both the
slave list and the netpoll part are always protected by rtnl lock, unless
I'm missing something, and indeed .ndo_netpoll_setup() is always called
under rtnl.

BTW, bond_netpoll_cleanup() has the same problem - maybe you could check if
we can remove the bond->lock from there also and update the patch?
