Subject: [PATCH] Fix hibernate/resume in presence of PREEMPT_RCU and hotplug


This fixes a oops encountered when doing hibernate/resume in presence
of PREEMPT_RCU.  The problem was that the code failed to disable preemption
when accessing a per-CPU variable.  This is OK when called from code
that already has preemption disabled, but such is not the case from
the suspend/resume code path.
