Hmmm... It looks like my attempts to make RCU recover from misnesting are
not completely foolproof. I will be especially happy to look into this
if you could look for the source of the irq_enter()/irq_exit() misnesting.

(And yes, it still might be a bug in my code -- I will be looking at that
yet again as well.)

Thanx, Paul
