Oh, yes. It is completely an option -- although I would like to see it
be the norm :)

Right, actually I agree with you. That was my point about using SMP
lock points. Since it uses the existing structure for SMP concurrency,
the patch is small -- but its effects are pretty large. Its a fairly
big deal.

No, but I had to take that approach as it was suggested the patch be
merged for 2.4.10!

I am glad you take a pro side to the preemption issue. Hopefully I can
get some continued support and see some work towards inclusion in 2.5.
Any help is appreciated.

Sorry for the confusion.
