Subject: [PATCH v5 tip/core/rcu 13/16] rcu: Make rcu_tasks_kthread()'s GP-wait loop allow preemption

From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

The grace-period-wait loop in rcu_tasks_kthread() is under (unnecessary)
RCU protection, and therefore has no preemption points in a PREEMPT=n
kernel.  This commit therefore removes the RCU protection and inserts
cond_resched().
