Pulling cpu hotplug locks inside the mm core function like
lru_add_drain_all just asks for problems and the recent lockdep splat
[1] just proves this. While the usage in that particular case might
be wrong we should prevent from locking as lru_add_drain_all is used
at many places. It seems that this is not all that hard to achieve
actually.

We have done the same thing for drain_all_pages which is analogous by
a459eeb7b852 ("mm, page_alloc: do not depend on cpu hotplug locks inside
the allocator"). All we have to care about is to handle
      - the work item might be executed on a different cpu in worker from
        unbound pool so it doesn't run on pinned on the cpu

      - we have to make sure that we do not race with page_alloc_cpu_dead
        calling lru_add_drain_cpu

the first part is already handled because the worker calls lru_add_drain
which disables preemption when calling lru_add_drain_cpu on the local
cpu it is draining. The later is true because page_alloc_cpu_dead
is called on the controlling CPU after the hotplugged CPU vanished
completely.

Hi,
this has been posted as 2 patch series [1] previously. It turned out
that the first patch was simply broken and the second one could be
simplified because the irq disabling is just pointless. There were
no other objections so I am resending this patch which should remove
quite a large space of potential lockups as lru_add_drain_all is used
at many places so removing the hoptlug locking is a good thing in
general.

Can we have this merged or there are still some objections?
