There are many preempt_count() users all around waiting for similar issues.
Wouldn't it be more reasonable to have current->softirq_disable_cnt just saving
the softirq count on context switch?

And I expect a few adjustments in schedule_debug() and atomic checks more
generally but that should be it and it would probably be less error-prone.
Although I'm probably overlooking other issues on the way.

Thanks.
