Revert "rcu: Move PREEMPT_RCU preemption to switch_to() invocation"
This reverts commit 616c310e83b872024271c915c1b9ab505b9efad9. (Move PREEMPT_RCU preemption to switch_to() invocation). Testing by Sasha Levin <levinsasha928@gmail.com> showed that this can result in deadlock due to invoking the scheduler when one of the runqueue locks is held. Because this commit was simply a performance optimization, revert it. Reported-by: Sasha Levin <levinsasha928@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Tested-by: Sasha Levin <levinsasha928@gmail.com>
