Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: introduce helpers for
 handling chip->reg_lock

> This is a no-op that simply moves all locking and unlocking of
> ->reg_lock into trivial helpers. I did that to be able to easily add
> some ad hoc instrumentation to those helpers to get some information
> on contention and hold times of the mutex. Perhaps others want to do
> something similar at some point, so this frees them from doing the
> 'sed -i' yoga, and have a much smaller 'git diff' while fiddling.
