ouch, i thought this has been taken care of. The attached
sched-2.4.0-test8-B0 patch gets rid of flags-passing in reschedule_idle().
(the patch is relative to test8-pre1 + the previous scheduler patch) While
i liked smp_send_reschedule() being executed in parallel (it stresses the
APIC code harder), putting it into the critical section is just a small
increase of critical section length and the code gets cleaner (and
slightly faster) as a result. Patch applies, compiles, works here just
fine. This should solve your problem, right?
