    ok, found it - it's a false positive in commit.c due to need_resched()
    not doing a touch_preempt_timing(). Newest patch at:

    i changed need_resched() to do a touch_preempt_timing() - this also got
    rid of some other changes. All code i checked really takes
    need_resched() seriously if it looks at it - any reason why you didnt
    add this to need_resched() before?
