[lm-sensors] mlseep() --> Kernel hangs with i2c-i801 driver?

Hi All
   
  I am using the i2c-i801 bus driver for our own device driver. In my project, the SMB Alert signal is used to generate an interrupt (IRQ 11 for our ICH6 SMBus controller on my host). I call the function i2c_smbus_xfer() to do data transfers. I got error messages and my kernel hangs when this function is called in a tasklet handler function set by my interrupt handler. But there is no problem when calling this function outside the interrupt handler and its tasklet handler. Further debug messages show that the error messages occured during the call to function msleep(1) in i801_block_transaction(). Part of the error messages is shown below:
