Subject: [PATCH] softirq: Reserve a bit in tasklet.state for the user

Allow the user to communicate with the tasklet through the atomic state
field by assigning a bit for their use. This can be used, for example,
to differentiate between a tasklet called following an irq or from
process context, where some hardware state may only be valid after the
irq.
