rcu classic: simplify the next pending batch
use a batch number(rcp->pending) instead of a flag(rcp->next_pending) rcu_start_batch() need to change this flag, so mb()s is needed for memory-access safe. but(after this patch applied) rcu_start_batch() do not change this batch number(rcp->pending), rcp->pending is managed by __rcu_process_callbacks only, and troublesome mb()s are eliminated. And codes look simpler and clearer. Signed-off-by: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com> Cc: "Paul E.
