I have noticed that somewhere around 2.4.17 sys_sysmips() function from sysmips.c was rewritten and call to o32_ret_from_sys_call disappear. This function (o32_ret_from_sys_call) was responsible for calling do_softirq() after each system call. I'm curious, what is the current mechanism in mips 2.4.x that ensures that do_softirq is called after system call ?

10x.
