Well, if the https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9504277/ patch from Lv
worked, the attached one should work too (please test), but it can be
justified in a slightly more convincing way.

Namely, the idea is that acpi_os_read/write_memory() should never be
used before invoking acpi_os_initialize() and since those are the only
places where the list of memory regions is walked under RCU without
extra locking, it is safe to skip the RCU synchronization until that
happens.

Thanks,
Rafael
