Hi Steven,

I applied them on top of 2438ee33 ("Linux 3.2.37-rt55 REBASE"). I just
grabbed the patches from the mailing list and re-applied them on top of
this tree and is still works.

After doing the same thing on v3.2.43-rt63-rebase I got:

Applying: softirq: Make serving softirqs a task flag
Applying: softirq: Split handling function
Applying: softirq: Split softirq locks
Using index info to reconstruct a base tree...
Falling back to patching base and 3-way merge...
Auto-merging include/linux/sched.h
Applying: rcu: rcutiny: Prevent RCU stall
Applying: softirq: Adapt NOHZ softirq pending check to new RT scheme
Applying: softirq: Add more debugging
Applying: softirq: Fix nohz pending issue for real
Applying: net: Use local_bh_disable in netif_rx_ni()
Applying: FIX [1/2] slub: Do not dereference NULL pointer in node_match
Applying: FIX [2/2] slub: Tid must be retrieved from the percpu area of
the current processor
Applying: slub: Use correct cpu_slab on dead cpu
Applying: smp: introduce a generic on_each_cpu_mask() function
Applying: smp: add func to IPI cpus based on parameter func
Applying: slub: only IPI CPUs that have per cpu obj to flush
Applying: mm: Enable SLUB for RT
Applying: slub: Enable irqs for __GFP_WAIT

git did not complain about patch 7 ("softirq: Fix nohz pending issue for
real") but about 3 ("softirq: Split softirq locks"). The diff between
the two queues (except different sha1, index and so) is:

--- old/0003-softirq-Split-softirq-locks.patch
+++ new/0003-softirq-Split-softirq-locks.patch
@@ -60,8 +60,8 @@
int softirq_nestcnt;
+ unsigned int softirqs_raised;
- int kmap_idx;
+ # if defined CONFIG_HIGHMEM || defined CONFIG_X86_32

and this looks good.
