perf: Comply with new rcu checks API
The software events hlist doesn't fully comply with the new rcu checks api. We need to consider three different sides that access the hlist: - the hlist allocation/release side. This side happens when an events is created or released, accesses to the hlist are serialized under the cpuctx mutex. - the events insertion/removal in the hlist. This side is always serialized against the above one. The hlist is always present during such operations. This side happens when a software event is scheduled in/out. The serialization that ensures the software event is really attached to the context is made under the ctx->lock. - events triggering. This is the read side, it can happen concurrently with any update side. This patch deals with them one by one and anticipates with the separate rcu mem space patches in preparation. This patch fixes various annoying rcu warnings. Reported-by: Paul E.
