Subject[PATCH 3.16 124/233] kvm: async_pf: fix rcu_irq_enter() with irqs enabled
3.16.48-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>

commit bbaf0e2b1c1b4f88abd6ef49576f0efb1734eae5 upstream.

native_safe_halt enables interrupts, and you just shouldn't
call rcu_irq_enter() with interrupts enabled. Reorder the
call with the following local_irq_disable() to respect the
invariant.
