The driver may sleep under spin mutex, and the function call path in file "sys/dev/pci/yds.c" in NetBSD-7.1 release is:
yds_resume [acquire the spin mutex]
        bus_dmamem_alloc(BUS_DMA_WAITOK) --> may sleep
        bus_dmamem_map(BUS_DMA_WAITOK) --> may sleep
        bus_dmamem_create(BUS_DMA_WAITOK) --> may sleep
        bus_dmamem_load(BUS_DMA_WAITOK) --> may sleep

These bugs are found by a static analysis tool written by myself, and they are checked by my review of the NetBSD code.

The possible fix of this bug is to replace "BUS_DMA_WAITOK" with "BUS_DMA_NOWAIT".
