Hello, sorry for the delay.

I've been running with variants of this patch, things seem ok.

As noted earlier, there are a lot of drivers doing this disable_irq +
irq_handler + enable_irq sequence.  I found about 60.
Many already take a lock in the interrupt handler, and look like we
could just remove the call to disable_irq (example: cp_interrupt,
drivers/net/ethernet/realtek/8139cp.c).

Here's how I modified your patch.  The locking compiles away if
CONFIG_NET_POLL_CONTROLLER=n.

I can work on converting all the drivers from disable_irq to
netpoll_irq_lock, if that's okay with you.

In igb there's also a synchronize_irq() called from the netpoll
controller (in igb_irq_disable()), I think a similar locking scheme
would work.
I also saw a few disable_irq_nosync and disable_percpu_irq. These are
okay?


Thanks.
