For the issue identified by PeterZ, just booting the machine was enough to
touch a task_struct after it was put, which exploded. After fixing this, I
ran through the membarrier selftests: they run fine.

Then I did a test branch for liburcu [1] which uses the private cmd with
registration. Both 'make check' and 'make regtest' run fine on Power8.

Thanks,

Mathieu
