From
Subject[PATCH] tty: make sure that proc_clear_tty stores the cpu flags
Date
From: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com>

proc_clear_tty() gets called with interrupts off (while holding the task list
lock) from sys_setid. This means that it needs the _irqsave version of the
locking primitives.
