[RFC][PATCH 5/7] sched: Remove resetting exec_start in put_prev_task_rt()

From: Steven Rostedt
Date: Thu Jun 16 2011 - 21:59:35 EST

From: Hillf Danton <dhillf@xxxxxxxxx>

There's no reason to clean the exec_start in put_prev_task_rt() as it is reset
when the task gets back to the run queue. This saves us doing a store() in the
fast path.
