This should also happen on !RT with the threadedirq command line switch.
The UART will be threaded and the PIT will not, and this is the problem.
So we need to split those or disable the UART. The other important thing
for RT is the higher resolution of the clocksource/clockevents device (I
don't know if this is part of the series or not…).

I'm currently replacing the v6 with this v7 in my RT tree. What is the
status of this series upstream wise?
