There are a number of bits of code sprinkled around the kernel to
set a thread flag if a certain condition is true, and clear it
otherwise.

This series ports relevant bits of code to use the new
update_thread_flag() helpers implemented in [2].


Note: This is a repost of a previous RFC [1].  Part of patch 1, and
all of patch 4 of that series have been split out and reviewed
separately ([2], [3] respectively).  I currently expect them to merge
via Marc's KVM tree.

The remainder of the patches from [1] are reposted here.

Patch 1 ports some core code that to use the update_thread_flag()
helpers.

The remaining patches port relevant bits of arch code.

Build-tested on the affected architectures; some context switch stress
testing done on arm64, which exercises a few call sites for the new
helpers.

Comments welcome.

Cheers
---Dave
