Subject: [PATCH] tracing: Always run per-cpu ring buffer resize with schedule_work_on()

From: Corey Minyard <cminyard@...sta.com>

The code for resizing the trace ring buffers has to run the per-cpu
resize on the CPU itself.  The code was using preempt_off() and
running the code for the current CPU directly, otherwise calling
schedule_work_on().

At least on RT this could result in the following:

|BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/rtmutex.c:673
|in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 0, pid: 607, name: bash
|3 locks held by bash/607:
|CPU: 0 PID: 607 Comm: bash Not tainted 3.12.15-rt25+ #124
|(rt_spin_lock+0x28/0x68)
|(free_hot_cold_page+0x84/0x3b8)
|(free_buffer_page+0x14/0x20)
|(rb_update_pages+0x280/0x338)
|(ring_buffer_resize+0x32c/0x3dc)
|(free_snapshot+0x18/0x38)
|(tracing_set_tracer+0x27c/0x2ac)

probably via
|cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/
|echo 1 > events/enable ; sleep 2
|echo 1024 > buffer_size_kb

If we just always use schedule_work_on(), there's no need for the
preempt_off().  So do that.
