Subject[PATCH RT 18/20] mm: perform lru_add_drain_all() remotely
4.1.27-rt31-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Luiz Capitulino <lcapitulino@redhat.com>

lru_add_drain_all() works by scheduling lru_add_drain_cpu() to run
on all CPUs that have non-empty LRU pagevecs and then waiting for
the scheduled work to complete. However, workqueue threads may never
have the chance to run on a CPU that's running a SCHED_FIFO task.
This causes lru_add_drain_all() to block forever.

This commit solves this problem by changing lru_add_drain_all()
to drain the LRU pagevecs of remote CPUs. This is done by grabbing
swapvec_lock and calling lru_add_drain_cpu().

PS: This is based on an idea and initial implementation by
Rik van Riel.
