Subject[PATCH] x86/process: remove unused variable in __switch_to_xtra()
After the commit ecc7e37d4dad ("x86/io: Speedup schedule out of I/O
bitmap user") and commit 22fe5b0439dd ("x86/ioperm: Move TSS bitmap
update to exit to user work"), warning is found:

arch/x86/kernel/process.c: In function ‘__switch_to_xtra’:
arch/x86/kernel/process.c:618:31: warning: variable ‘next’ set but not
used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
struct thread_struct *prev, *next;
arch/x86/kernel/process.c:618:24: warning: variable ‘prev’ set but not
used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
struct thread_struct *prev, *next;
Fix this by removing the unused variable @prev and @next;
