    SubjectRe: [patch] Real-Time Preemption, -RT-2.6.12-rc6-V0.7.48-00
    Hi Ingo,

    I'm having some difficulty with your latest patches; more specifically
    linux-2.6.12-rc6-git4-RT-V0.7.48-10 floods me with BUGs like these:

    BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context ksoftirqd/1(7) at kernel/rt.c:1657

    .. [<c0141bdb>] .... print_traces+0x1b/0x60
    .....[<c01041c3>] .. ( <= dump_stack+0x23/0x30)

    I gather these are because of:


    static void rh_report_status (unsigned long ptr)
    struct urb *urb;
    struct usb_hcd *hcd;
    int length = 0;
    unsigned long flags;

    urb = (struct urb *) ptr;
    local_irq_save (flags);
    spin_lock (&urb->lock);


    where local_irq_save() would disable pre-emption while spin_lock(); the
    urb->lock is not a raw lock; can sleep.

    I'm not well versed in that code; do you have a suggestion?

    On another note; X seems to have trouble getting up. It consumes a full
    CPU right after mode switching (afaict) without getting any progress.
    I'll try and get a nice trace of X using sysrq-t.
