rcu: Use simple wait queues where possible in rcutree
As of commit dae6e64d2bcfd ("rcu: Introduce proper blocking to no-CBs kthreads GP waits") the RCU subsystem started making use of wait queues. Here we convert all additions of RCU wait queues to use simple wait queues, since they don't need the extra overhead of the full wait queue features. Originally this was done for RT kernels[1], since we would get things like... BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/rtmutex.c:659 in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 1, pid: 8, name: rcu_preempt Pid: 8, comm: rcu_preempt Not tainted Call Trace: [<ffffffff8106c8d0>] __might_sleep+0xd0/0xf0 [<ffffffff817d77b4>] rt_spin_lock+0x24/0x50 [<ffffffff8106fcf6>] __wake_up+0x36/0x70 [<ffffffff810c4542>] rcu_gp_kthread+0x4d2/0x680 [<ffffffff8105f910>] ? __init_waitqueue_head+0x50/0x50 [<ffffffff810c4070>] ? rcu_gp_fqs+0x80/0x80 [<ffffffff8105eabb>] kthread+0xdb/0xe0 [<ffffffff8106b912>] ? finish_task_switch+0x52/0x100 [<ffffffff817e0754>] kernel_thread_helper+0x4/0x10 [<ffffffff8105e9e0>] ? __init_kthread_worker+0x60/0x60 [<ffffffff817e0750>] ? gs_change+0xb/0xb ...and hence simple wait queues were deployed on RT out of necessity (as simple wait uses a raw lock), but mainline might as well take advantage of the more streamline support as well. [1] This is a carry forward of work from v3.10-rt; the original conversion was by Thomas on an earlier -rt version, and Sebastian extended it to additional post-3.10 added RCU waiters; here I've added a commit log and unified the RCU changes into one, and uprev'd it to match mainline RCU.
