Subject: [PATCH v2 09/12] task_isolation: net: don't flush backlog on CPUs
 running isolated tasks

From: Yuri Norov <ynorov@...vell.com>

If CPU runs isolated task, there's no any backlog on it, and
so we don't need to flush it. Currently flush_all_backlogs()
enqueues corresponding work on all CPUs including ones that run
isolated tasks. It leads to breaking task isolation for nothing.

In this patch, backlog flushing is enqueued only on non-isolated CPUs.
