Actually in 2.4 schedule() itself enables interrupts. Just looked at the code.
I was wrong, schedule does enable interrupts.

cli/sti disables/enables interrupts only on local processor.
Most likely your locking won't work on SMP.  However it depends on other stuff.
For example BH is guarantied to be run only on one CPU at time.
