rcu: Avoid acquiring rcu_node locks in timer functions
This commit switches manipulations of the rcu_node ->wakemask field to atomic operations, which allows rcu_cpu_kthread_timer() to avoid acquiring the rcu_node lock. This should avoid the following lockdep splat reported by Valdis Kletnieks: [ 12.872150] usb 1-4: new high speed USB device number 3 using ehci_hcd [ 12.986667] usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=413c, idProduct=2513 [ 12.986679] usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0 [ 12.987691] hub 1-4:1.0: USB hub found [ 12.987877] hub 1-4:1.0: 3 ports detected [ 12.996372] input: PS/2 Generic Mouse as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input10 [ 13.071471] udevadm used greatest stack depth: 3984 bytes left [ 13.172129] [ 13.172130] ======================================================= [ 13.172425] [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] [ 13.172650] 2.6.39-rc6-mmotm0506 #1 [ 13.172773] ------------------------------------------------------- [ 13.172997] blkid/267 is trying to acquire lock: [ 13.173009] (&p->pi_lock){-.-.-.}, at: [<ffffffff81032d8f>] try_to_wake_up+0x29/0x1aa [ 13.173009] [ 13.173009] but task is already holding lock: [ 13.173009] (rcu_node_level_0){..-...}, at: [<ffffffff810901cc>] rcu_cpu_kthread_timer+0x27/0x58 [ 13.173009] [ 13.173009] which lock already depends on the new lock.
