   4: Make unregister_netdevice() wait until the device is
      free, as Alexey suggested in his comment.

      That's what this patch does.  It waits indefinitely for the
      device to become free and prints a message every ten seconds
      while waiting.

Being so close to 2.4.0, this is the fix I prefer as well
for now.  Patch applied, thanks.

We can do more elaborate things in the 2.5.x tree.
