Subject[PATCH 1/7] sched: revert 498657a478c60be092208422fefa9c7b248729c2
Date
498657a478c60be092208422fefa9c7b248729c2 incorrectly assumed that
preempt wasn't disabled around context_switch() and thus was fixing
imaginary problem. It also broke kvm because it depended on
->sched_in() to be called with irq enabled so that it can do smp calls
from there.

Revert the incorrect commit and add comment describing different
contexts under with the two callbacks are invoked.

Avi: spotted transposed in/out in the added comment.
