    Again, is the term "interrupt contexts" meant to include softIRQ contexts?

    (Nothing in firewire-core/-sbp2/-net etc. is called in hardware
    interrupts. BTW, we actually could and maybe should change all the
    spinlocks in them from spin_lock_irq to spin_lock_bh. Only
    firewire-ohci's local ohci->lock needs to be IRQ safe. OTOH this could
    change if somebody comes up with a migration of the stack to threaded
    IRQ handling.)
