Subjectspin_unlock_bh() and preempt_check_resched()
Hi,

I'm wondering about macros like _spin_unlock_bh(lock):
do { \
_raw_spin_unlock(lock); \
preempt_enable(); \
local_bh_enable(); \
__release(lock); \
} while (0)
Is there a reason for using preempt_enable() instead of a simple
preempt_enable_no_resched() ?

Since we know bottom halves are disabled, preempt_schedule() will always
return at once (preempt_count!=0), and hence preempt_check_resched() is
useless here...

Regards,
Samuel
