2.2 Kernel Question

Is the 2.2 kernel 100% reentrant, or does it still block on certain system
calls?  I've check various on-line sources about the 2.2 kernel, but I
can't find anything that addresses this.  All I do know is that an older
kernel FAQ (http://metalab.unc.edu/mdw/FAQ/Threads-FAQ/Reentrancy.html)
states that the 2.0 kernel isn't, and that 100% reentrancy was a goal of
the 2.1 kernels.
