sched/rt: Add missing rmb()

While discussing the proposed SCHED_DEADLINE patches which in parts
mimic the existing FIFO code it was noticed that the wmb in
rt_set_overloaded() didn't have a matching barrier.

The only site using rt_overloaded() to test the rto_count is
pull_rt_task() and we should issue a matching rmb before then assuming
there's an rto_mask bit set.

Without that smp_rmb() in there we could actually miss seeing the
rto_mask bit.

Also, change to using smp_[wr]mb(), even though this is SMP only code;
memory barriers without smp_ always make me think they're against
hardware of some sort.
