Perhaps you should keep it as a separate patch. 4bdced5c9a29 is now in
mainline. The next time you port to mainline, you may drop this fix,
and cause the scheduling IPI to run in threaded context (which would be
bad).

Having it as a separate patch, would remind us that it would need to be
added to mainline in the future.

Feel free to add to that that patch:
