rcu: Move TINY_RCU quiescent state out of extended quiescent state
TINY_RCU's rcu_idle_enter_common() invokes rcu_sched_qs() in order to inform the RCU core of the quiescent state implied by idle entry. Of course, idle is also an extended quiescent state, so that the call to rcu_sched_qs() speeds up RCU's invoking of any callbacks that might be queued. This speed-up is important when entering into dyntick-idle mode -- if there are no further scheduling-clock interrupts, the callbacks might never be invoked, which could result in a system hang. However, processing callbacks does event tracing, which in turn implies RCU read-side critical sections, which are illegal in extended quiescent states. This patch therefore moves the call to rcu_sched_qs() so that it precedes the point at which we inform lockdep that RCU has entered an extended quiescent state.
