Merge various fixes, mainly for locking issues.
A bit of attention is to give to "uml: avoid malloc to sleep in atomic
sections". It's really an hack, but we already use this hack in a more buggy
way (see the patch).
In practice, when malloc() is called, it's translated in
a call to kmalloc(GFP_?), where ATOMIC or KERNEL is used depending on
in_atomic() and in_interrupt().
Inform me of my mistakes, so I can keep imitating Homer Simpson's "Doh!".
