Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 08/86] rcu: put per-CPU kthread at non-RT priority during CPU hotplug operations
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paul.mckenney@linaro.org>

If you are doing CPU hotplug operations, it is best not to have
CPU-bound realtime tasks running CPU-bound on the outgoing CPU.
So this commit makes per-CPU kthreads run at non-realtime priority
during that time.
