This is hunk shouldn't be needed. The reason for it is probably that the
following wakeup_softirqd() would avoid further invoke_softirq()
performing the actual softirq work. It would leave early due to
ksoftirqd_running(). Unless I'm wrong, any raise_softirq() invocation
outside of an interrupt would do the same.

I would like PeterZ / tglx to comment on this one. Basically I'm not
sure if it is okay to expect softirqs beeing served and waited on that
early in the boot.
