Subject: [PATCH 7/8] flex_proportions: Disable preemption entering the write
 section.

The seqcount fprop_global::sequence is not associated with a lock. The
write section (fprop_new_period()) is invoked from a timer and since the
softirq is preemptible on PREEMPT_RT it is possible to preempt the write
section which is not desited.

Disable preemption around the write section on PREEMPT_RT.
