stacks: call check_irqs() after switch_next()

In function run_thread() the function check_irqs() gets called
after the thread switch for atomic handoff reasons. In yield()
it's the other way round.

If check_irqs() is called after run_thread() and check_irqs()
is called before switch_next() in yield(), it can happen in a
constructed case that a background thread runs twice without
a check_irqs() call in between. Call check_irqs() after
switch_next() in yield() to prevent this.
