Indeed for the softirq part it simplifies things.

And that one too makes things simple. But note that

account_hardirq_enter_time()

will still need some preempt count checks to see if
this is a nested hardirq, a hardirq interrupting a softirq
or a hardirq interrupting a task.

But I think it's a win in the end. I'll try that.

Thanks.
