Subject: [PATCH v2 01/12] task_isolation: vmstat: add quiet_vmstat_sync
 function

From: Chris Metcalf <cmetcalf@...lanox.com>

In commit f01f17d3705b ("mm, vmstat: make quiet_vmstat lighter")
the quiet_vmstat() function became asynchronous, in the sense that
the vmstat work was still scheduled to run on the core when the
function returned.  For task isolation, we need a synchronous
version of the function that guarantees that the vmstat worker
will not run on the core on return from the function.  Add a
quiet_vmstat_sync() function with that semantic.
