Actually, this isn't related to softirq-vs-hardirq. Most interrupt
handlers are interruptible, so the rule is simply that KM_BIO_SRC_IRQ must
always be taken under local_irq_disable().

A quick scan indicates that the following files might be buggy in this
regard:

drivers/mmc/wbsd.c
drivers/mmc/at91_mci.c
drivers/mmc/sdhci.c
drivers/scsi/scsi_lib.c when called from stex.c
fs/ntfs/aops.c

Happily, KM_BIO_DST_IRQ has no users and can presumably be removed.


Fixes for stex and ntfs follow.

The KM_BIO_SRC_IRQ kmap slot requires local irq protection.
