Subject[PATCH 2/4] jrcu: tap rcu_read_unlock
jrcu: tap into rcu_read_unlock().

All places where rcu_read_unlock() is the final lock in
a set of nested rcu locks are known rcu quiescent points.
This patch recognizes that subset of those which also make
the task preemptable. The others are left unrecognized.

Not fundamentally needed, accelerates rcu batching.
