From: Tom Zanussi <zanussi@kernel.org>

commit 62d0a2a30cd0 (tasklet: Address a race resulting in
double-enqueue) addresses a problem that can result in a tasklet being
enqueued on two cpus at the same time by combining the RUN flag with a
new CHAINED flag, and relies on the combination to be present in order
to zero it out, which can never happen on (!SMP and !PREEMPT_RT_FULL)
because the RUN flag is SMP/PREEMPT_RT_FULL-only.

So make sure the above commit is only applied for the SMP ||
PREEMPT_RT_FULL case.

Fixes: 62d0a2a30cd0 ("tasklet: Address a race resulting in double-enqueue")
