Subject: [PATCH tip/core/urgent 5/7] sched: Add irq_{enter,exit}() to scheduler_ipi()

From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@...llo.nl>

Ensure scheduler_ipi() calls irq_{enter,exit} when it does some actual
work. Traditionally we never did any actual work from the resched IPI
and all magic happened in the return from interrupt path.

Now that we do do some work, we need to ensure irq_{enter,exit} are
called so that we don't confuse things.

This affects things like timekeeping, NO_HZ and RCU, basically
everything with a hook in irq_enter/exit.

Explicit examples of things going wrong are:

  sched_clock_cpu() -- has a callback when leaving NO_HZ state to take
                    a new reading from GTOD and TSC. Without this
                    callback, time is stuck in the past.

  RCU -- needs in_irq() to work in order to avoid some nasty deadlocks
