Subject[PATCH 2/2] sched: optimize cond_resched()
Optimize cond_resched() by removing one conditional.

Currently cond_resched() checks system_state ==
SYSTEM_RUNNING in order to avoid scheduling before the
scheduler is running.

We can however, as per suggestion of Matt, use
PREEMPT_ACTIVE to accomplish that very same.
