Subject: [PATCH v3 15/19] x86/irq: Remove an old outdated comment about context tracking races
Date: Thu, 23 Nov 2017 20:33:01 -0800
Message-ID: <12e75976dbbb7ece2b0a64238f1d3892dfed1e16.1511497875.git.luto@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1511497874.git.luto@kernel.org>
In-Reply-To: <cover.1511497874.git.luto@kernel.org>

That race has been fixed and code cleaned up for a while now.
