rcu: add grace-period age and more kthread state to tracing
This commit adds the age in jiffies of the current grace period along with the duration in jiffies of the longest grace period since boot to the rcu/rcugp debugfs file. It also adds an additional "O" state to kthread tracing to differentiate between the kthread waiting due to having nothing to do on the one hand and waiting due to being on the wrong CPU on the other hand.
