Another thing. Perhaps we can push the idea of your patch a little
further by re-entering HARDIRQ_OFFSET at the end of the softirq
processing and do the final sub_preempt_count(HARDIRQ_OFFSET) at the
very end of irq_exit().

This way irq_exit() looks a bit more simple to me: everything there
becomes considered as in hardirq: (ie: rcu_irq_exit() and
tick_nohz_irq_exit() won't appear anymore as weird special cases) and
we get rid of that IRQ_EXIT_OFFSET hack that fixes the CONFIG_PREEMPT

I'm attaching an untested patch that modify yours. It's probably
missing some corner cases that rely on in_interrupt() value in
rcu_irq_exit() and tick_nohz_irq_exit() and may be other things.
