Is my previous patch acceptable?

I inlined it as below(and updated based on linux-2.6.38-rc4)

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] softirq: introduce loacal_bh_enable_force_wake()

If there is pending softirq, don't handle it in the caller's
context, invoke ksoftirqd directly instead.

del_timer_sync() will be the first caller.
