a device driver I wrote contains calls to cli and sti.
The CPU specs require Interrupts to be disabled for this settings.
This worked fine with some older 2.4.x Kernels, but is not working with
2.4.17 or newer anymore.
Can I savely disable Interrupts using inline assembler code?
The source code is not comprehensible
