Below patch should fix this warning. I would say warning is pretty harmless..

Thanks,
Venki

This avoids the harmless WARNING by lockdep in acpi_processor_idle().

The reason for WARNING is because at the depth of idle handling code,
some of the idle handlers disable interrupts, some times, while returning from
the idle handler. After return, acpi_processor_idle and few other routines
in the file did an unconditional local_irq_enable(). With LOCKDEP, enabling
irq when it is alread enabled generates the below WARNING.
