It has: Task is about to relax, re-enables interrupts in
xnpod_resume_thread, IRQ hits, handler is entered over the relaxing RT
task, xnpod_schedule in its tail performs the switch to root, which then
continues to relaxed task, IRQ tail resumes over a different task, on
SMP potentially also on a different CPU. I can send you a the trace if
you want to have a closer look.
