Subject[PATCH] powerpc 2.6.21-rt6: replace preempt_schedule w/ preempt_schedule_irq

Hi Ingo and Thomas,

Please apply.

Replace preempt_schedule() w/ preempt_schedule_irq() in irq return path,
to avoid irq-entry recursion and stack overflow problems for powerpc64.
It hits when doing netperf from another machine to the machine running rt kernel.

This patch applies on top of linux-2.6.21 + patch-2.6.21-rt6.

Compile, boot and netperf tested on celleb.
