rcu: Stop disabling interrupts in scheduler fastpaths
We need the scheduler's fastpaths to be, well, fast, and unnecessarily disabling and re-enabling interrupts is not necessarily consistent with this goal. Especially given that there are regions of the scheduler that already have interrupts disabled. This commit therefore moves the call to rcu_note_context_switch() to one of the interrupts-disabled regions of the scheduler, and removes the now-redundant disabling and re-enabling of interrupts from rcu_note_context_switch() and the functions it calls. Reported-by: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com> [ paulmck: Shift rcu_note_context_switch() to avoid deadlock, as suggested by Peter Zijlstra. ]
