Subject[PATCH 1/4] rcu: Add _notrace variation of rcu_dereference_raw() and hlist_for_each_entry_rcu()
From: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

As rcu_dereference_raw() under RCU debug config options can add quite a
bit of checks, and that tracing uses rcu_dereference_raw(), these checks
happen with the function tracer. The function tracer also happens to trace
these debug checks too. This added overhead can livelock the system.

Add a new interface to RCU for both rcu_dereference_raw_notrace() as well
as hlist_for_each_entry_rcu_notrace() as the hlist iterator uses the
rcu_dereference_raw() as well, and is used a bit with the function tracer.
