Subject[PATCH 5/7] percpu-rwsem: change it to rely on rss_sync infrastructure
Currently down_write/up_write calls synchronize_sched_expedited()
twice which is evil. Change this code to rely on rcu-sync primitives.
This avoids the _expedited "big hammer", and this can be faster in
the contended case or even in the case when a single thread does
down_write/up_write in a loop.

Of course, a single down_write() will take more time, but otoh it
will be much more friendly to the whole system.

To simplify the review this patch doesn't update the comments, fixed
by the next change.
