I just whipped this up (haven't even tried to compile it), but this should
satisfy everyone. Those that register a callback that needs RCU protection
simply registers with one of the _rcu versions, and all will be done. And
since DO_TRACE is a macro, and rcuidle is a constant, the rcu protection
code will be compiled out for locations that it is not needed.

With this, perf doesn't even need to do anything extra but register with
the "_rcu" version.
