Subject: [PATCH] sched: unify the check on atomic sleeping in __might_sleep()
 and schedule_bug()

From: Michael Wang <wangyun@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

Fengguang Wu <wfg@...ux.intel.com> has reported the bug:

[    0.065660]  [<c1b2bbd6>] kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10

It was caused by that:

	native_smp_prepare_cpus()
	preempt_disable()		//preempt_count++
	mutex_lock()			//in __irq_alloc_descs
	__might_sleep()			//system is booting, avoid check
	might_resched()
	__schedule()
	preempt_disable()		//preempt_count++
	schedule_bug()			//preempt_count > 1, report bug

The __might_sleep() avoid check on atomic sleeping until the system booted
while the schedule_bug() doesn't, it's the reason for the bug.

This patch will add one additional check in schedule_bug() to avoid check
until the system booted, so the check on atomic sleeping will be unified.
