Although this patch has already been rejected, I want to comment on the subject 
you have chosen. As you are submitting it to the maintainer of 
drivers/net/wireless/, there is no need to place those entities in the subject. 
A better subject would have been "b43: Add proper locking for 
b43_op_beacon_set_tim()".
