Subject: [PATCH 2.6.20 08/10] nfnetlink_log: shorten instances_lock holding time
Date: Mon, 12 Feb 2007 01:40:12 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070212004012.GI8262@rere.qmqm.pl> (raw)

Shorten instances_lock window at the cost of doing unnecessary work
on the failure case. I don't know if it makes sense actually. ;>
