for reference, the stack trace from the image is:


the lock that triggers the panic is bt_lock, which was taken in hci_intr()
and attempted to be re-taken in bthidev_output().

the above trace is from when pressing the caps-lock key, i believe.

i considered attempt to drop and allow re-taking the bt_lock like you
have described, but i didn't know if it was safe, and there's a lot of
code to read to check.  maybe with the above info you can suggest a
better way to solve this problem.
