	Hi Linus, Andrew,

Here are 2 more fixes for ps3fb:
  [1] ps3fb: prevent use after free of fb_info
  [2] ps3fb: fix deadlock on kexec()

The first one fixes a potential use after free.
The second one fixes a lockup when using kexec or shutdown while /dev/fb0 is
open (e.g. when using the petitboot graphical bootloader to load the second
stage kernel).

Can we please get these in 2.6.24? Thanks!

With kind regards,
