Subject[PATCH 5/7 v3] rcu: Fix dyntick-idle tracing
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

The tracing subsystem started using rcu_irq_entry() and rcu_irq_exit()
(with my blessing) to allow the current _rcuidle alternative tracepoint
name to be dispensed with while still maintaining good performance.
Unfortunately, this causes RCU's dyntick-idle entry code's tracing to
appear to RCU like an interrupt that occurs where RCU is not designed
to handle interrupts.

This commit fixes this problem by moving the zeroing of ->dynticks_nesting
after the offending trace_rcu_dyntick() statement, which narrows the
window of vulnerability to a pair of adjacent statements that are now
marked with comments to that effect.
