I'll take a look at this. I think this is due to the nature of Giant unlocking
itself when we think it is protecting the bus stuff.

I have a different patch than sigsys' patch that converts Giant into a real
lock, which sigsys' patch doesn't quite do. I worry that it will cause a lot of
other problems if we don't do that and/or expose deadlock situations in other
drivers / busses. All the places that use the lock *should* have giant locked
