No harm if the coded as in the patch, but an alternate suggestion
if you like it:

The only reason left for "p->state = TASK_RUNNING;" here is when
cpu is remote. If cpu is not remote then p->state will be set by:

ttwu_queue()
ttwu_do_activate()
ttwu_do_wakeup()
p->state = TASK_RUNNING;

It would be more clear that setting state to TASK_RUNNING is protecting
the process until it has been removed from the wake_list by
sched_ttwu_pending() by setting p->state = TASK_RUNNING in ttwu_queue_remote().
