SubjectRe: [PATCH 07/10] generic rwsem: implement down_read_critical() / up_read_critical()
Add down_read_critical() / up_read_critical() API.

down_read_critical() is similar to down_read() with the following changes:
- when the rwsem is read owned with queued writers, down_read_critical()
callers are allowed to acquire the rwsem for read without queueing;
- when the rwsem is write owned, down_read_critical() callers get queued in
front of threads trying to acquire the rwsem by other means.
- caller can't sleep until releasing lock with up_read_critical(),
and preemption is disabled for that time.
