acpi: fix bogus preemption logic
The ACPI_PREEMPTION_POINT() logic was introduced in commit 8bd108d (ACPICA: add preemption point after each opcode parse). The follow up commits abe1dfab6, 138d15692, c084ca70 tried to fix the preemption logic back and forth, but nobody noticed that the usage of in_atomic_preempt_off() in that context is wrong. The check which guards the call of cond_resched() is: if (!in_atomic_preempt_off() && !irqs_disabled()) in_atomic_preempt_off() is not intended for general use as the comment above the macro definition clearly says: * Check whether we were atomic before we did preempt_disable(): * (used by the scheduler, *after* releasing the kernel lock) On a CONFIG_PREEMPT=n kernel the usage of in_atomic_preempt_off() works by accident, but with CONFIG_PREEMPT=y it's just broken. The whole purpose of the ACPI_PREEMPTION_POINT() is to reduce the latency on a CONFIG_PREEMPT=n kernel, so make ACPI_PREEMPTION_POINT() depend on CONFIG_PREEMPT=n and remove the in_atomic_preempt_off() check.
