Hi Pavel,

Till -rc5, I was able to boot a kernel with irqpoll option and in -rc6 I
can't. It simply hangs. I suspect it is realted to this change. I have yet
to confirm that. But before that one observation.

Not at every place note_interrupt() is called with desc->lock() held. For
example, handle_level_irq(). I enabled spin lock debugging and I run into
following BUG().


PID hash table entries: 256 (order: 8, 2048 bytes)
time.c: Using 3.579545 MHz WALL PM GTOD PIT/TSC timer.
time.c: Detected 3000.218 MHz processor.

=====================================
[ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
-------------------------------------
swapper/0 is trying to release lock (&irq_desc_lock_class) at:
[<ffffffff8104c673>] note_interrupt+0x7a/0x22b
but there are no more locks to release!
other info that might help us debug this:
no locks held by swapper/0.
