rcu: Provide better diagnostics for blocking in RCU callback functions
Currently blocking in an RCU callback function will result in "scheduling while atomic", which could be triggered for any number of reasons. To aid debugging, this patch introduces a rcu_callback_map that is used to tie the inappropriate voluntary context switch back to the fact that the function is being invoked from within a callback.
