Subject[PATCH, -tip] v2 Make hierarchical RCU be the default
This patch makes the new TREE_RCU be the default, pointing the old
CLASSIC_RCU Kconfig symbol at it and introducing a new FLAT_RCU symbol
to allow the old version to be selected. It also introduces the kernel
config parameter RCU_READ_PREEMPT_DISABLE, which allows debug code in
pagemap.h to operate in TREE_RCU as it did in FLAT_RCU.

The approach is to place the RCU-specific configs in a new file named
kernel/Kconfig.rcu, which is sourced from kernel/Kconfig.preempt,
making this change transparent to all architectures that source
kernel/Kconfig.preempt. The remaining five architectures (alpha, frv,
h8300, m68k, and sparc) have been modified to select CLASSIC_RCU in
their arch Kconfigs and to source kernel/Kconfig.rcu. The only
difference that these five arches will see is the RCU configs at the
very end of the config list. These five architectures were tested by
directly invoking qconf on the corresponding Kconfig file, and the
results looked correct. I do not have the corresponding hardware for
any sort of real testing.
The resulting patch is relatively small, and directly touches a minimum
number of architectures.

This patch is -not- yet suitable for inclusion, only for testing in
-tip, -next, and the like. If all goes well, it might be appropriate
for 2.6.29.
