I'm still digesting but…

if an interrupt occurs at this point and invokes
	raise_softirq_irqof() => softirq_pending_set_mask()
	
then we lose the pending bits, correct? This may be invoked from
	local_bh_enable() => local_bh_enable_ip_mask() =>
	local_bh_enable_common() => softirq_enabled_set()

and as far as I can, interrupts are only disabled in the tracing case.
