    This is because of work Dave Miller and Ingo did - irq count, softirq
    count, and lock count (when PREEMPT=y) are unified into preempt_count.

    So it is intended.

    The unification makes things cleaner and simpler, using one value in
    place of three and one interface and concept in place of many others.
    It also gives us a single simple thing to check for an overall notion of
    "atomicity", which is what makes debugging so nice.
