powerpc, membarrier: Skip memory barrier in switch_mm()

Allow PowerPC to skip the full memory barrier in switch_mm(), and
only issue the barrier when scheduling into a task belonging to a
process that has registered to use expedited private.

Threads targeting the same VM but which belong to different thread
groups is a tricky case. It has a few consequences:

It turns out that we cannot rely on get_nr_threads(p) to count the
number of threads using a VM. We can use
(atomic_read(&mm->mm_users) == 1 && get_nr_threads(p) == 1)
instead to skip the synchronize_sched() for cases where the VM only has
a single user, and that user only has a single thread.

It also turns out that we cannot use for_each_thread() to set
thread flags in all threads using a VM, as it only iterates on the
thread group.

Therefore, test the membarrier state variable directly rather than
relying on thread flags. This means
membarrier_register_private_expedited() needs to set the
MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED flag, issue synchronize_sched(), and
only then set MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED_READY which allows
private expedited membarrier commands to succeed.
membarrier_arch_switch_mm() now tests for the
MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED flag.
