No, unfortunately not. :( I thought I had some idea as i386 seems to have soft
and hard irqs using a seperate stack and thought they maybe loose the process
flag there (x86_64 seems to always do that for soft irqs and if it does for hard
irqs it was hidden well enough for me not to see). But trial and error showed
showed no improvement when I made a copy of the original TIF_NEED_RSCHED before
executing on stack. So not really any further.
And then the usual distractions hit...
