rcu: Don't redundantly disable irqs in rcu_irq_{enter,exit}()
This commit replaces a local_irq_save()/local_irq_restore() pair with a lockdep assertion that interrupts are already disabled. This should remove the corresponding overhead from the interrupt entry/exit fastpaths. This change was inspired by the fact that Iftekhar Ahmed's mutation testing showed that removing rcu_irq_enter()'s call to local_ird_restore() had no effect, which might indicate that interrupts were always enabled anyway. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
