Subject: [PATCH RT 1/2] softirq: Avoid "local_softirq_pending" messages if
 ksoftirqd is blocked

If the ksoftirqd thread has a softirq pending and is blocked on the
`local_softirq_locks' lock then softirq_check_pending_idle() won't
complain because the "lock owner" will mask away this softirq from the
mask of pending softirqs.
If ksoftirqd has an additional softirq pending then it won't be masked
out because we never look at ksoftirqd's mask.

If there are still pending softirqs while going to idle check
ksoftirqd's and ktimersfotd's mask before complaining about unhandled
softirqs.
