with the preemption config set, there is a compile failure with the
ieee1394 drivers. thank you to Patrick Chase and the others who
reported this.

note: drivers are going to need to explicity include linux/sched.h if
they use (certain) spinlock primitives and want to compile with
CONFIG_PREEMPT set. its cleaner anyhow.

this patch is against 2.4.9-ac10 but should be fine for 2.4.10-pre5...
