percpu_ref: decouple switching to atomic mode and killing
percpu_ref has treated the dropping of the base reference and switching to atomic mode as an integral operation; however, there's nothing inherent tying the two together. The use cases for percpu_ref have been expanding continuously. While the current init/kill/reinit/exit model can cover a lot, the coupling of kill/reinit with atomic/percpu mode switching is turning out to be too restrictive for use cases where many percpu_refs are created and destroyed back-to-back with only some of them reaching extended operation. The coupling also makes implementing always-atomic debug mode difficult. This patch separates out atomic mode switching into percpu_ref_switch_to_atomic() and reimplements percpu_ref_kill_and_confirm() on top of it. * The handling of __PERCPU_REF_ATOMIC and __PERCPU_REF_DEAD is now differentiated. Among get/put operations, percpu_ref_tryget_live() is the only one which cares about DEAD. * percpu_ref_switch_to_atomic() can be called multiple times on the same ref. This means that multiple @confirm_switch may get queued up which we can't do reliably without extra memory area. This is handled by making the later invocation synchronously wait for the completion of the previous one. This isn't particularly desirable but such synchronous waits shouldn't happen in most cases.
