ring-buffer: Move disabled check into preempt disable section
Lai Jiangshan [Mon, 8 Mar 2010 06:50:43 +0000 (14:50 +0800)]
The ring buffer resizing and resetting relies on a schedule RCU
action. The buffers are disabled, a synchronize_sched() is called
and then the resize or reset takes place.

But this only works if the disabling of the buffers are within the
preempt disabled section, otherwise a window exists that the buffers
can be written to while a reset or resize takes place.
