remove put_cpu_no_resched()
put_cpu_no_resched() is an optimization of put_cpu() which unfortunately can cause high latencies. The nfs iostats code uses put_cpu_no_resched() in a code sequence where a reschedule request caused by an interrupt between the get_cpu() and the put_cpu_no_resched() can delay the reschedule for at least HZ. The other users of put_cpu_no_resched() optimize correctly in interrupt code, but there is no real harm in using the put_cpu() function which is an alias for preempt_enable(). The extra check of the preemmpt count is not as critical as the potential source of missing a reschedule. Debugged in the preempt-rt tree and verified in mainline.
