Subject[RFC GIT PULL] softirq: Consolidation and stack overrun fix
Date
Thomas,

Please consider this patchset for pulling from:

git://github.com/fweisbec/linux-dynticks.git
irq/core-v2

HEAD: 539b9cde35b473483c722de110133cd757015947

It fixes stacks overruns reported by Benjamin Herrenschmidt:
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1378330796.4321.50.camel%40pasglop

And Paul Mackerras gave a feedback here:
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20130918065101.GA22060@drongo

Of course the fix probably comes at the expense of a performance
hit due to cache switch, miss, etc... when softirq are processed
at the end of interrupts, although I haven't tried to measure that.

Thanks.
