Subject: [PATCH 4.14 60/62] sched, trace: Fix prev_state output in sched_switch tracepoint

4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Pavankumar Kondeti <pkondeti@...eaurora.org>

commit 3054426dc68e5d63aa6a6e9b91ac4ec78e3f3805 upstream.

commit 3f5fe9fef5b2 ("sched/debug: Fix task state recording/printout")
tried to fix the problem introduced by a previous commit efb40f588b43
("sched/tracing: Fix trace_sched_switch task-state printing"). However
the prev_state output in sched_switch is still broken.

task_state_index() uses fls() which considers the LSB as 1. Left
shifting 1 by this value gives an incorrect mapping to the task state.
Fix this by decrementing the value returned by __get_task_state()
before shifting.
