I'm seeing the message:

bad: scheduling while atomic!

I see this dozens of times when I'm writing to a nand flash device using a vendor-provided driver from Compulab in Does this mean the driver has a bug or is incompatible with the preemptive configuration option? How bad is "bad"? Should I turn of the preemption option, ignore the message, or what?
