From: Matt Renzelmann <mjr@cs.wisc.edu>

All calls to ks8851_rdreg* and ks8851_wrreg* should be protected
with the driver's lock mutex.  A spurious interrupt may otherwise cause a
crash.

Hello,

I'm new to the kernel development process so I hope I've not screwed
this up with this extra text.  We found a potential issue using a new
driver testing tool called SymDrive.  It looks legitimate to me, so
I'm reporting it.  We hope to make this tool available in the future.
Please let me know if I should modify the patch or re-send without
this commentary.  Thanks in advance for your patience.

It is recommended to put the driver name in the subject,
for instance: 

[PATCH] ks8851: Fix missing mutex_lock/unlock

See the driver log for more examples.

It's weird to look a mutex being hold to call netdev_info().
Perhaps change it to look like below as the netdev_info()
does a lot more things and holding the lock during that
seems to be a waste.
