Oh, I somehow misread it.  Ick, it seems I have been out of date quite
badly... this would explain why my own character device causes
problems.  I had just been reading examples from old code and totally
missed the current init_waitqueue definition in <linux/wait.h>.

Now that you pointed this out, it seems that e.g. drivers/char/pc_keyb.c in
2.2.x kernels initializes its wait_queue head to NULL. Do you think
this can cause problems?
