Subject: [PATCH v5 tip/core/rcu 14/16] rcu: Remove redundant preempt_disable() from rcu_note_voluntary_context_switch()

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

In theory, synchronize_sched() requires a read-side critical section to
order against.  In practice, preemption can be thought of as being
disabled across every machine instruction.  So this commit removes
the redundant preempt_disable() from rcu_note_voluntary_context_switch().
