[PATCH] ia64: fix floating-point preemption problem
There've been reports of problems with CONFIG_PREEMPT=y and the high floating point partition. This is caused by the possibility of preemption and rescheduling on a different processor while saving or restioirng the high partition. The only places where the FPU state is touched are in ptrace, in switch_to(), and where handling a floating-point exception. In switch_to() preemption is off. So it's only in trap.c and ptrace.c that we need to prevent preemption. Here is a patch that adds commentary to make the conditions clear, and adds appropriate preempt_{en,dis}able() calls to make it so. In trap.c I use preempt_enable_no_resched(), as we're about to return to user space where the preemption flag will be checked anyway.
