It looks like it except for qdisc_watchdog() which needs an
rcu_read_lock() if I'm not mistaken/

static enum hrtimer_restart qdisc_watchdog(struct hrtimer *timer)
{
	struct qdisc_watchdog *wd = container_of(timer, struct 		
						 qdisc_watchdog,
						 timer);

	rcu_read_lock();
	qdisc_unthrottled(wd->qdisc);
	__netif_schedule(qdisc_root(wd->qdisc));
	rcu_read_unlock();

	return HRTIMER_NORESTART;
}
