SubjectRe: [PATCH -rt] rt-slab: fix cpu inconsistency case

Hi Hiroshi,

Thanks for looking into it. I'll take a deeper look at it later, but
first I have a few nitpicks with the patch.

This is the !PREEMPT_RT version. It should stay as is (with the
exception of ignoring the "cpu" variable. [ (void)cpu; ? ]

#define slab_irq_disable_nort(cpu) \
do { \
(void)cpu; \
local_irq_disable(); \
} while(0)

And these are the PREEMPT_RT version. So basically, this patch is a nop
for PREEMPT_RT. I doubt it will solve your bug ;-)
