cpu: Wait for RCU grace periods concurrently
In kernels built with CONFIG_PREEMPT, _cpu_down() waits for RCU and RCU-sched grace periods back-to-back, incurring quite a bit more latency than required. This commit therefore uses the new synchronize_rcu_mult() to allow waiting for both grace periods concurrently. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
