Subject2.5.33 preempt, schedule() with irqs disabled
[I first reported this problem in 2.5.29 but now I have more details.]

In 2.5.33, with CONFIG_PREEMPT enabled on an x86 UP machine, I can
reliably provoke the message "bad: schedule() with irqs disabled!". It
happens if I use ssh to login to the machine running 2.5.33, then
start xv or ee to display a large image using the encrypted X11

The problem goes away if I use rlogin instead of slogin. The machine
has a 233MHz CPU and the network is 100Mbit, so when using slogin the
image data transfer speed is CPU limited but when using rlogin the cpu
is about 50% idle.

The problem does not happen if I use scp to copy a large file from the
test machine. When using scp the machine generates about 2000
interrupts/s compared to 5500 ints/s when transferring the image data.

Disabling CONFIG_PREEMPT also makes the problem go away.

Here is a backtrace:
