    SubjectRe: Disabling interrupts in 2.4.x

    They are only disabled on the local CPU, they could still occur on other
    CPUs. This is not different from 2.2.

    > I've also looked at some other scsi drivers that are disabling interrupts

    unsigned flag;
    asm volatile("pushfl ; popfl %0" : "=r" (flag));
    printk(KERN_DEBUG "local interrupts are %s\n", (flag & (1<<9)) ? "enabled" : "disabled");
