[patch V2 1/2] mm: swap: Provide lru_add_drain_all_cpuslocked()

From: Thomas Gleixner
Date: Tue Jul 04 2017 - 05:36:30 EST

The rework of the cpu hotplug locking unearthed potential deadlocks with
the memory hotplug locking code.

The solution for these is to rework the memory hotplug locking code as well
and take the cpu hotplug lock before the memory hotplug lock in
mem_hotplug_begin(), but this will cause a recursive locking of the cpu
hotplug lock when the memory hotplug code calls lru_add_drain_all().

Split out the inner workings of lru_add_drain_all() into
lru_add_drain_all_cpuslocked() so this function can be invoked from the
memory hotplug code with the cpu hotplug lock held.
