Mixing of normal and irq spinlocks results in the following lockdep messages
on bootup on IP32:

------------------------------------------------------
swapper/1 [HC0[0]:SC0[1]:HE0:SE0] is trying to acquire:
 (&priv->meth_lock){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffff8026388c>] meth_tx+0x48/0x43c

and this task is already holding:
 (_xmit_ETHER#2){+.-...}, at: [<ffffffff802d3a00>] __qdisc_run+0x118/0x30c
which would create a new lock dependency:
 (_xmit_ETHER#2){+.-...} -> (&priv->meth_lock){+.+...}

but this new dependency connects a SOFTIRQ-irq-safe lock:
 (_xmit_ETHER#2){+.-...}
... which became SOFTIRQ-irq-safe at:
