I've applied this with some coding style fixups.

Thanks!

--------------------
net: netif_rx() must disable preemption

Eric Paris reported netif_rx() is calling smp_processor_id() from
preemptible context, in particular when caller is
ip_dev_loopback_xmit().

RPS commit added this smp_processor_id() call, this patch makes sure
preemption is disabled. rps_get_cpus() wants rcu_read_lock() anyway, we
can dot it a bit earlier.
