Holy cow, this is what PeterZ wrote to you a week ago:

     > +static inline void this_cpu_preempt_check(void) { }

     How about re-using debug_smp_processor_id() instead?

          http://lkml.org/lkml/2013/9/16/137

Firstly, that sentence is as damn obvious as it gets.

Secondly, even if it wasn't obvious to you, a 'git grep 
debug_smp_processor_id' would have told you the story.

Thirdly, if it wasn't obvious to you, and if you didn't think of using git 
grep, how about ... asking? If a reviewer gives you review feedback then 
you should address _EVERY_ single review feedback and not just ignore 
it...

I get the impression that you are trying to deny your excessive sloppiness 
in this thread - there's no other way to put it really.

as PeterZ pointed it out, we have well-working preempt checks in 
debug_smp_processor_id() / lib/smp_processor_id.c.

Instead of reusing that you created a new preempt check, plopped your new, 
25 lines, duplicated check into an ugly #ifdef section into sched/core.c - 
see that gem attached further below.

Pointing out your repeated lack of cooperation in this matter is a 
statement of facts, not an 'insulting behavior'. Your wasting of other 
people's time is simply not acceptable.

That I called you out on it might be embarrassing to you but there's a 
really easy solution to that: implement reviewer and maintainer requests 
and don't send sloppy patches repeatedly.
