Subject[PATCH RFC 7/9] RCU: rcutorture testing for RCU priority boosting
Work in progress, not for inclusion.  Still uses xtime because this
patch is still against 2.6.22.

This patch modifies rcutorture to also torture RCU priority boosting.
The torturing involves forcing RCU read-side critical sections (already
performed as part of the torturing of RCU) to run for extremely long
time periods, increasing the probability of their being preempted and
thus needing priority boosting. The fact that rcutorture's "nreaders"
module parameter defaults to twice the number of CPUs helps ensure lots
of the needed preemption.

To cause the torturing to be fully effective in -mm, run in presence
of CPU-hotplug operations.
