rcu: Limit rcu_state::levelcnt[] to RCU_NUM_LVLS items
Variable rcu_num_lvls is limited by RCU_NUM_LVLS macro. In turn, rcu_state::levelcnt[] array is never accessed beyond rcu_num_lvls. Thus, rcu_state::levelcnt[] is safe to limit to RCU_NUM_LVLS items. Since rcu_num_lvls could be changed during boot (as result of rcutree.rcu_fanout_leaf kernel parameter update) one might assume a new value could overflow the value of RCU_NUM_LVLS. However, that is not the case, since leaf-level fanout is only permitted to increase, resulting in rcu_num_lvls possibly to decrease. Cc: "Paul E.
