Subject[PATCH 3/4] add tracepoints in rwsem
Date
This allows a tracing framework, such as ftrace to measure the latency
during lock contention, and (unlike latencytop) allows to show whom to blame for holding
the lock for too long.

The tracepoints consist of 3 events
- a down_read, or down_write failed - a tracer can use this as a point of reference
- semaphore is granted after a failed down_read or down_write - usable to measure latency
- one writer, or all readers are woken - a tracer can see who was/is holding the lock,
and blame it for the latencies of all reader/writer tasks on the waiter list
