rcu: Fix deadlock in TREE_PREEMPT_RCU CPU stall detection

Under TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, print_other_cpu_stall() invokes
rcu_print_task_stall() with the root rcu_node structure's ->lock
held, and rcu_print_task_stall() acquires that same lock for
self-deadlock. Fix this by removing the lock acquisition from
rcu_print_task_stall(), and making all callers acquire the lock
instead.
