The logging of the problem happens because CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK is set
of course, but if he recompiles his kernel w/o this option, the logging
of the problem will go away, but the real problem (i.e. a spinlock is
held for way too long) will still be there.

You've got to be kidding, right? You are fixing the consequences of the
issue, not the cause of it.
