Subject: [GIT PULL] sched/core: implement and cpuhog

Hello, Ingo.

Can you please pull from the following git tree into sched/core to
receive cpuhog patches?

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/misc.git cpuhog

Both sched/core and the patches remained the same from the second
take[2].  Rusty Russell acked stop_machine changes and Oleg likes the
changes.

Peter agrees with the mechanics but is unhappy with the naming and
suggests using stop_cpu/machine() names instead.  Currently, visible
API is

* hog_one_cpu()
* hog_cpus()
* [__]stop_machine()

IIUC, Peter is suggesting something like (please feel free to correct
if I got it wrong)

* stop_one_cpu()
* stop_cpus()
* [__]stop_machine()

The renaming shouldn't be difficult one way or the other but I think
hog is better because it better describes what the API does (it
doesn't really stop the cpu or cpus).  Please refer to the discussions
in the first take[1] and second take[2] for details.

The branch contains the following changes.

Tejun Heo (4):
      cpuhog: implement cpuhog
      stop_machine: reimplement using cpuhog
      scheduler: replace migration_thread with cpuhog
      scheduler: kill paranoia check in synchronize_sched_expedited()
