[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]

 ./arch/x86/include/asm/msr-trace.h:47 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!
 other info that might help us debug this:
 RCU used illegally from idle CPU!
 rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
 RCU used illegally from extended quiescent state!
 no locks held by swapper/1/0.

Reschedule interrupt may be called in cpu idle state. This causes lockdep 
check warning above. 

Add irq_enter/exit() in smp_reschedule_interrupt(), irq_enter() tells the RCU 
subsystems to end the extended quiescent state, so the following trace call in 
ack_APIC_irq() works correctly.
