Subject: [PATCH 1/4] sched/idle: Fix missing need_resched() check after rcu_idle_enter()

Entering RCU idle mode may cause a deferred wake up of an RCU NOCB_GP
kthread (rcuog) to be serviced.

Usually a wake up happening while running the idle task is spotted in
one of the need_resched() checks carefully placed within the idle loop
that can break to the scheduler.

Unfortunately in default_idle_call(), the call to rcu_idle_enter() is
already beyond the last need_resched() check and we may halt the CPU
with a resched request unhandled, leaving the task hanging.

Fix this with performing a last minute need_resched() check after
calling rcu_idle_enter().

Reported-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@...nel.org>
Fixes: 96d3fd0d315a (rcu: Break call_rcu() deadlock involving scheduler and perf)
