Subject[PATCH 2/2] mm/vmstat: Protect per cpu variables with preempt disable on RT
Date
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

Disable preemption on -RT for the vmstat code. On vanila the code runs
in IRQ-off regions while on -RT it may not when stats are updated under
a local_lock. "preempt_disable" ensures that the same resources is not
updated in parallel due to preemption.

This patch differs from the preempt-rt version where __count_vm_event and
__count_vm_events are also protected. The counters are explicitly "allowed
to be to be racy" so there is no need to protect them from preemption. Only
the accurate page stats that are updated by a read-modify-write need
protection.
