What about buffer_sem in drivers/oprofile/event_buffer.c and
start_sem in drivers/oprofile/oprof.c?  Want me to submit a
patch to convert all three?

   I think we should minimize changes to generic oprofile code
   (in drivers/oprofile) to minimize divergence from main stream linux.
   For this reason I don't think we should touch buffer_sem and

Absolutely. If you clean those up the patches should go to the oprofile maintainers and lkml, not us.
