    Fix stop_machine_run problem with naughty real time process
    stop_machine_run() does its work on "kstopmachine" thread having max
    priority.  However that thread get such priority after woken up.
    Therefore, in the following case ...
      - "kstopmachine" try to run on CPU1
      - There is a real time process which doesn't relinquish CPU time
        voluntary on CPU1
    ...  "kstopmachine" can't start to run and the CPU on which
        stop_machine_run() is runing hangs up.  To fix this problem, call
        sched_setscheduler() before waking up that thread.
