PCI: Fix fakephp deadlock
This patch works around a problem in the fakephp driver when a process writing "0" to a "power" sysfs file to fake removal of a PCI device ends up deadlocking itself in the sysfs code. The patch is functionally identical to the one in Linus' tree post 2.6.24: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=5c796ae7a7ebe56967ed9b9963d7c16d733635ff I have tested it on a 2.6.23 kernel.
