Latest version of the patch, against -current today:

Sorry was unable to boot a -current kernel for a couple of weeks (acpi
issue) but will test the bluetooth as far as I'm able soon (visually it
looks ok)

- Make protocol entry points take kernel_lock, kill the inline wrappers.

I like that better, it would be intended that eventually locking is pushed
right down to individual connections?

- Replace tcp callout_invoking/callout_ack stuff with callout_halt.
 The invoking/ack stuff doesn't work properly on MP systems.

got too many arguments to callout_halt, did you miss a file in the diff?

I think that changes to callout was committed so you need to update your source tree.

I think this is nearly ready to go, aside from more testing.

I think you need the below patch (GENERIC kernel does not include ISO)?
