    I think I located the reason for the Ugh in the scsi cdrom driver.
    do_sr_request() (in drivers/cdrom/sr.c).

    The function is starting with

    But later uses the macro INIT_SCSI_REQUEST:
    #define INIT_SCSI_REQUEST \
    if (!CURRENT) { \
    spin_unlock_irqrestore(&current_lock,flags); \
    return; \

    Which does not reset global_irq_holder (when __SMP__ is defined).

    Notice also that if the host is "in_recovery" that same function returns
    without re-enabling interrupts.
