Subject[PATCH 2/5] rcu/nocb: Perform deferred wake up before last idle's need_resched() check
Date
Entering RCU idle mode may cause a deferred wake up of an RCU NOCB_GP
kthread (rcuog) to be serviced.

Usually a local wake up happening while running the idle task is handled
in one of the need_resched() checks carefully placed within the idle
loop that can break to the scheduler.

Unfortunately the call to rcu_idle_enter() is already beyond the last
generic need_resched() check and we may halt the CPU with a resched
request unhandled, leaving the task hanging.

Fix this with splitting the rcuog wakeup handling from rcu_idle_enter()
and place it before the last generic need_resched() check in the idle
loop. It is then assumed that no call to call_rcu() will be performed
after that in the idle loop until the CPU is put in low power mode.
