    void __put_task_struct_inline(struct task_struct *tsk)
    #error Boo, you can't do this.

    from sched.h:

    static inline void put_task_struct(struct task_struct *t)
    if (atomic_dec_and_test(&t->usage))

    but is it used?

    [rcrocomb@spanky test_2.6.17-rt8]$ find ./ -name \*.c -print0 | xargs
    -0 grep -l "put_task_struct(" | wc -l

    Yes it is. Also, beginning at line 292 in what I call t6.diff (the
    most recent URL, I believe):


    + * We dont want to do complex work from the scheduler with preemption
    + * disabled, therefore we delay the work to a per-CPU worker thread.
    + */
    +void fastcall __put_task_struct(struct task_struct *task)
    + struct list_head *head;
    + head = &get_cpu_var(delayed_put_task_struct_list);
    + list_add_tail(&task->delayed_drop, head);
    + _wake_cpu_desched_task();
    + put_cpu_var(delayed_put_task_struct_list);

    So I think you're mistaken. Patch is applied like this:

    [rcrocomb@spanky test_2.6.17-rt8]$ patch -p0 < ../patches/t6.diff
