Not to put too fine a point on it, but, I don't see how this can
possibly justify preventing me from committing my critical_*() stuff.
You've just stated publically that your preemption stuff is unusable
as it currently stands. Why am I supposed to wait an arbitrary period
of time for you to fix, test, and commit it?
I would REALLY like to commit my critical_*() stuff, and for the record
this will also include the stage-2 stuff described in the original commit
comments that will be made a few days after the current commit.
:> Preemptive kernels don't even make it out of single user mode for SMP machines,

:> If people want to play with it, preempt.patch on freefall is updated via a cron
:> job every half hour or so. Unfortunately, however, it's in a limbo atm due to
