Yes, but then it enables interrupts at one point.

And I'm not saying that is wrong - I'm saying that the warning is really
because you didn't tell the kernel that it was _not_ wrong. The warning is
a "I got called with interrupts disabled, not nobody actually told me that
I shouldn't reschedule. I will refuse to reschedule (exactly because
interrupts weren't enabled), but I don't like the fact that somebody
apparently did things behind my back".

Think of the kernel as a grumpy girlfriend that you just stood up, and
bring flowers next time.
