[PATCH 4.4 005/266] trace: Fix preempt_enable_no_resched() abuse

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed May 15 2019 - 08:18:16 EST

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit d6097c9e4454adf1f8f2c9547c2fa6060d55d952 upstream.

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.
