Hi Uladzislau!

This patch generally looks good to me (see some nits below),
but it would be really great to add some motivation, e.g. numbers.

Thanks!

Cosmetic nit: you don't need a new line here.

Here too.

I'd open code it. It's used only once, but hiding preempt_disable()
behind a helper makes it harder to understand and easier to mess.

Then ne_fit_preload() might require disabled preemption (which it can
temporarily re-enable), so that preempt_enable()/disable() logic
will be in one place.
