You lost me on this one. IRQs are not at all disabled.

Oh, you mean the _uninterruptible suffix?

That only affects accounting during the sleep. Since this is rcutorture,
the exact suffix is not all that relevant. So the current state is that
rcutorture tends to use _uninterruptible.

Or am I missing your point?

Thanx, Paul
