sched/core: Optimize __schedule()

Oleg noted that by making do_exit() use __schedule() for the TASK_DEAD
context switch, we can avoid the TASK_DEAD special case currently in
__schedule() because that avoids the extra preempt_disable() from
schedule().

In order to facilitate this, create a do_task_dead() helper which we
place in the scheduler code, such that it can access __schedule().

Also add some __noreturn annotations to the functions, there's no
coming back from do_exit().
