Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 09/86] rcu: avoid hammering sched with yet another bound RT kthread
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paul.mckenney@linaro.org>

The scheduler does not appear to take kindly to having multiple
real-time threads bound to a CPU that is going offline. So this
commit is a temporary hack-around to avoid that happening.
