That doesn't make much sense here. tasklet will only run when interrupts
are enabled, and that is much later. You could move it to there.

I already allocated these vectors for something else.

No way adding another ugly special case like this. I wanted
to rip out the KDB version for a long time.


If anything pass a flag.

Why is this needed?
