But it does:

void __sched schedule_preempt_disabled(void)
{
	sched_preempt_enable_no_resched();
	schedule();
	preempt_disable();
}

Where we have:

asmlinkage __visible void __sched schedule(void)
{
	struct task_struct *tsk = current;

	sched_submit_work(tsk);
	do {
		preempt_disable();
		__schedule(false);
		sched_preempt_enable_no_resched();
	} while (need_resched());
}

Which makes:

void __sched schedule_preempt_disabled(void)
{
	struct task_struct *tsk  = current;

	scehdule_preempt_enable_no_resched();
	sched_submit_work(tsk);
	do {
		preempt_disable();
		__schedule(false);
		schedule_preempt_enable_no_resched();
	} while (need_resched());
	preempt_disable();
}

My schedule_idle() is simply schedule_preempt_disabled() without the
change in preemption and no call to sched_submit_work().

Does this mean I can change the Cc: to Acked-by: ?
