sched: Mark RCU reader in sched_show_task()
When sched_show_task() is invoked from try_to_freeze_tasks(), there is no RCU read-side critical section, resulting in the following splat: [ 125.780730] =============================== [ 125.780766] [ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ] [ 125.780804] 3.7.0-rc3+ #988 Not tainted [ 125.780838] ------------------------------- [ 125.780875] /home/rafael/src/linux/kernel/sched/core.c:4497 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!
