>Description:
	Giant is not held when tsleep is called in the msp kernel thread.  This causes a panic when INVARIANTS are enabled.
>How-To-Repeat:
	Compile your kernel with "options BKTR_NEW_MSP34XX_DRIVER" and have an msp chip bktr card.  ie. ATI TV Wonder (not VE)
>Fix:
	The following patch fixes the problem by aquiring Giant.  Attached also.
