Subject[76/85] perf: Fix perf_lock_task_context() vs RCU
3.2.49-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 058ebd0eba3aff16b144eabf4510ed9510e1416e upstream.

Jiri managed to trigger this warning:

[] ======================================================
[] [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
[] 3.10.0+ #228 Tainted: G W
[] -------------------------------------------------------
[] p/6613 is trying to acquire lock:
[] (rcu_node_0){..-...}, at: [<ffffffff810ca797>] rcu_read_unlock_special+0xa7/0x250
[]
[] but task is already holding lock:
[] (&ctx->lock){-.-...}, at: [<ffffffff810f2879>] perf_lock_task_context+0xd9/0x2c0
[]
[] which lock already depends on the new lock.
[]
[] the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
[]
[] -> #4 (&ctx->lock){-.-...}:
[] -> #3 (&rq->lock){-.-.-.}:
[] -> #2 (&p->pi_lock){-.-.-.}:
[] -> #1 (&rnp->nocb_gp_wq[1]){......}:
[] -> #0 (rcu_node_0){..-...}:

Paul was quick to explain that due to preemptible RCU we cannot call
rcu_read_unlock() while holding scheduler (or nested) locks when part
of the read side critical section was preemptible.

Therefore solve it by making the entire RCU read side non-preemptible.

Also pull out the retry from under the non-preempt to play nice with RT.
