[PATCH] lockdep: irqtrace subsystem, move account_system_vtime() calls into kernel/softirq.c
At the moment, powerpc and s390 have their own versions of do_softirq which include local_bh_disable() and __local_bh_enable() calls. They end up calling __do_softirq (in kernel/softirq.c) which also does local_bh_disable/enable. Apparently the two levels of disable/enable trigger a warning from some validation code that Ingo is working on, and he would like to see the outer level removed. But to do that, we have to move the account_system_vtime calls that are currently in the arch do_softirq() implementations for powerpc and s390 into the generic __do_softirq() (this is a no-op for other archs because account_system_vtime is defined to be an empty inline function on all other archs). This patch does that.
