If there are pending works, schedule will be called to give cpu to it, I wonder
why the work function to be scheduled will be run with irq disabled.
Seems we should enable irq again before calling schedule, not sure.

I test the patch on my beagle board and is OK, and if you don't apply one
patch into your tree, there are few people who may test it since they have to
parse the raw email patch(which is more inconvenient than 'git pull') for test
if they want to do.
