Subject[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 2/2] sched: Stop switched_to_rt() from sending IPIs to offline CPUs
Date
The rcutorture test suite occasionally provokes a splat due to invoking
rt_mutex_lock() which needs to boost the priority of a task currently
sitting on a runqueue that belongs to an offline CPU:

But the target task's priority has already been adjusted, so the only
purpose of switched_to_rt() invoking resched_curr() is to wake up the
CPU running some task that needs to be preempted by the boosted task.
But the CPU is offline, which presumably means that the task must be
migrated to some other CPU, and that this other CPU will undertake any
needed preemption at the time of migration. Because the runqueue lock
is held when resched_curr() is invoked, we know that the boosted task
cannot go anywhere, so it is not necessary to invoke resched_curr()
in this particular case.

This commit therefore makes switched_to_rt() refrain from invoking
resched_curr() when the target CPU is offline.
