Yes, this change is harmless. I'm reworking (ie. rewriting) stop_machine at
the moment to simplify it, and as a side effect it won't be yielding. (The
yield is almost useless, since there's nothing at same priority as this
thread anyway).

I've included this patch for my next push to Linus.

Thanks,
Rusty.
