    SubjectRe: scheduler ignores need_resched flag in 2.2.x and 2.3.x?

    Please let me understand... The code does something like:

    0 disable interrupts
    1 set reschedule flag
    2 enable interrupts
    3 iret

    If an interrupt occurs betweet 2 and 3 the flag value gets lost.

    What means interrups are disabled ? Incoming ints are simply ignored (I
    really don't thin this is the case) or are they queued ? Because in that
    case we get an int immediately after the enable-int call, and the window
    where we can get an int is 0-3, and not 2-3. Way larger.
