Subject[PATCH] ARM: smp: Fix suspicious RCU originating from cpu_die()
Date
While running hotplug tests I ran into this RCU splat

===============================
[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]
3.4.0 #3275 Tainted: G W
-------------------------------
include/linux/rcupdate.h:729 rcu_read_lock() used illegally while idle!

other info that might help us debug this:

RCU used illegally from idle CPU!
rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
RCU used illegally from extended quiescent state!
4 locks held by swapper/2/0:
#0: ((cpu_died).wait.lock){......}, at: [<c00ab128>] complete+0x1c/0x5c
#1: (&p->pi_lock){-.-.-.}, at: [<c00b275c>] try_to_wake_up+0x2c/0x388

When a cpu is marked offline during its idle thread it calls
cpu_die() during an RCU idle period. cpu_die() calls complete()
to notify the killing process that the cpu has died. complete()
calls into the scheduler code which sometimes grabs an RCU read
lock in cpuacct_charge().

To avoid this problem, copy what x86 is doing and have a per_cpu
variable to track the cpu state and have the killing process poll
that variable.
