I really don't like this..

- it's too specific to the actual reschedule condition, any wakeup this
late is dodgy, not only those that happen to cause a local
reschedule.

- we can already test this with unwind and checking against __cpuidle

- moving all of __cpuidle into noinstr would also cover this. And we're
going to have to do that anyway.

That seems like it wants to be:

WARN_ONCE(in_task(), "...");
