Possible bogus sti() in sched.c

In run_old_timers() there is an sti() after calling any
registered timer function that looks suspicious. (sched.c)

Starting from schedule() the call trace will be:
do_bottom_half -> run_bottom_halves -> timer_bh -> run_old_timers
so interrupts shouldn't be off anyway (unless I'm missing something)
