snd-pcsp: use HRTIMER_CB_SOFTIRQ
Stas Sergeev [Tue, 20 May 2008 09:47:29 +0000 (11:47 +0200)]
Change HRTIMER_CB_IRQSAFE to HRTIMER_CB_SOFTIRQ,
as suggested by Thomas Gleixner.
That solves the lock dependancy reported in
Bug #10701.
That also allows to call hrtimer_start()
directly, tasklet "stupid hack" removed.
