2.0 SMP was all big kernel lock.

It will probably take some work to get the driver going on 2.0.x.  For
spinlocks, here is a cookbook for changing the code:

* delete all spinlock-related includes

* replace "spin_lock_irqsave(...)" with

	save_flags(flags); cli();

* replace "spin_lock_irqrestore(...)" with


* delete all spin_lock, spin_unlock
