[PATCH -rt] scheduling while atomic in fs/file.c

From: Daniel Walker
Date: Tue May 16 2006 - 12:28:14 EST

Quite the smp_processor_id() warnings. The timer was pinned
before, but the spinlock protection is such that the timer
can migrate with out issues. Allowing the timers to
migrate (although not often) will allow them to
move off busy cpu's , and potentially follow the
work queue that they wake up.
