Subject[PATCH 3/9] arm64: Mark __switch_to() as __sched
Unlike most architectures (and only in keeping with powerpc), arm64 has
a non __sched() function on the path to our cpu_switch_to() assembly

It is expected that for a blocked task, in_sched_functions() can be used
to skip all functions between the raw context switch assembly and the
scheduler functions that call into __switch_to(). This is the behaviour
expected by stack_trace_consume_entry_nosched(), and the behaviour we'd
like to have such that we an simplify arm64's __get_wchan()
implementation to use arch_stack_walk().

This patch mark's arm64's __switch_to as __sched. This *will not* change
the behaviour of arm64's current __get_wchan() implementation, which
always performs an initial unwind step which skips __switch_to(). This
*will* change the behaviour of stack_trace_consume_entry_nosched() and
stack_trace_save_tsk() to match their expected behaviour on blocked
tasks, skipping all scheduler-internal functions including

Other than the above, there should be no functional change as a result
of this patch.
