Subject[PATCH 4/4] rcu: Fix early call to rcu_irq_exit()
Date
On the irq exit path, tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick()
may raise a softirq, which action leads to the wake up
path and select_task_rq_fair() that makes use of rcu
to iterate the domains.

This is an illegal use of RCU because we may be in dyntick
idle mode:

Fix this by calling rcu_irq_exit() after tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick().
