Indeed, I recently submitted a patch to switch the
atomic_notifier_call_chain to blocking_notifier_call_chain, as some of
the chained calls can sleep.
Not sure if that is related, or if the change would make this case better
or worse, but it would be interesting to find out.
The patch is in the current gpio/devel, btw.

Cheers,
Kent.
