Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.0 23/34] bpf: Fix preempt_enable_no_resched() abuse

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@...radead.org>

[ Upstream commit 0edd6b64d1939e9e9168ff27947995bb7751db5d ]

Unless the very next line is schedule(), or implies it, one must not use
preempt_enable_no_resched(). It can cause a preemption to go missing and
thereby cause arbitrary delays, breaking the PREEMPT=y invariant.
