sched: Remove PREEMPT_NEED_RESCHED from generic code
While hunting a preemption issue with Alexander, Ben noticed that the currently generic PREEMPT_NEED_RESCHED stuff is horribly broken for load-store architectures. We currently rely on the IPI to fold TIF_NEED_RESCHED into PREEMPT_NEED_RESCHED, but when this IPI lands while we already have a load for the preempt-count but before the store, the store will erase the PREEMPT_NEED_RESCHED change. The current preempt-count only works on load-store archs because interrupts are assumed to be completely balanced wrt their preempt_count fiddling; the previous preempt_count load will match the preempt_count state after the interrupt and therefore nothing gets lost. This patch removes the PREEMPT_NEED_RESCHED usage from generic code and pushes it into x86 arch code; the generic code goes back to relying on TIF_NEED_RESCHED. Boot tested on x86_64 and compile tested on ppc64.
