The concept of kernel preemption seemed simple, but it's fine lines like
this that boggle me. Or perhaps it's only a fine line to me. Hahaha. I'll
take it from you, anyway. :)

I'm not sure, either. As far as I remember the XFS code (kernel space) was
modified to be preemptible. Exactly what gets preempted is beyond me. I
hope the XFS gurus can help us out with this (maybe this is worth a FAQ
entry, Seth?). :)
