rcu classic: update qlen when cpu offline
When callbacks are moved from offline cpu to this cpu, the qlen field of this rdp should be updated. [ Paul E. McKenney: ] The effect of this bug would be for force_quiescent_state() to be invoked when it should not and vice versa -- wasting cycles in the first case and letting RCU callbacks remain piled up in the second case. The bug is thus "benign" in that it does not result in premature grace-period termination, but should of course be fixed nonetheless. Preemption is disabled by the caller's get_cpu_var(), so we are guaranteed to remain on the same CPU, as required. The local_irq_disable() is indeed needed, otherwise, an interrupt might invoke call_rcu() or call_rcu_bh(), which could cause that interrupt's increment of ->qlen to be lost.
