From: Xunlei Pang <pang.xunlei@linaro.org>

In check_preempt_equal_prio_common(), it requeues "next" ahead
in the "run queue" and want to push current away. But when doing
the actual pushing, if the system state changes, the pushing may
fail as a result.

In this case, p finally becomes the new current and gets running,
while previous current was queued back waiting in the same "run
queue". This broke FIFO.

This patch adds a flag named RT_PREEMPT_PUSHAWAY for task_struct::
rt_preempt, sets it when doing check_preempt_equal_prio_common(),
and clears it if current is away(when it is dequeued). Thus we can
test this flag in p's post_schedule_rt() to judge if the pushing
has happened. If the pushing failed, requeue previous current back
to the head of its "run queue" and start a rescheduling.
