Subject[this_cpu_xx V4 11/20] RCU: Use this_cpu operations
RCU does not do dynamic allocations but it increments per cpu variables
a lot. These instructions results in a move to a register and then back
to memory. This patch will make it use the inc/dec instructions on x86
that do not need a register.
