powerpc: Re-enable preemption before cpu_die()
Signed-off-by: Darren Hart [Wed, 4 Aug 2010 18:28:33 +0000 (18:28 +0000)]
start_secondary() is called shortly after _start and also via

cpu_idle()->cpu_die()->pseries_mach_cpu_die()

start_secondary() expects a preempt_count() of 0. pseries_mach_cpu_die() is
called via the cpu_idle() routine with preemption disabled, resulting in the
following repeating message during rapid cpu offline/online tests
with CONFIG_PREEMPT=y:

BUG: scheduling while atomic: swapper/0/0x00000002

Move the cpu_die() call inside the existing preemption enabled block of
cpu_idle(). This is safe as the idle task is affined to a single CPU so the
debug_smp_processor_id() tests (from cpu_should_die()) won't trigger as we are
in a "migration disabled" region.
