sched: Fix endless sync_sched/rcu() loop inside _cpu_down()
Commit 6acce3ef8: sched: Remove get_online_cpus() usage tries to do sync_sched/rcu() inside _cpu_down() but triggers: INFO: task swapper/0:1 blocked for more than 120 seconds. ... [<ffffffff811263dc>] synchronize_rcu+0x2c/0x30 [<ffffffff81d1bd82>] _cpu_down+0x2b2/0x340 ... It was caused by that in the rcu boost case we rely on smpboot thread to finish the rcu callback, which has already been parked before sync in here and leads to the endless sync_sched/rcu(). This patch exchanges the sequence of smpboot_park_threads() and sync_sched/rcu() to fix the bug.
