Subject[PATCH v2 rcu/dev 2/2] rcu: Disable laziness if lazy-tracking says so
During suspend, we see failures to suspend 1 in 300-500 suspends.
Looking closer, it appears that asynchronous RCU callbacks are being
queued as lazy even though synchronous callbacks are expedited. These
delays appear to not be very welcome by the suspend/resume code as
evidenced by these occasional suspend failures.

This commit modifies call_rcu() to check if rcu_async_should_hurry(),
which will return true if we are in suspend or in-kernel boot.

Ignoring the lazy hint makes the 3000 suspend/resume cycles pass
reliably on a 12th gen 12-core Intel CPU, and there is some evidence
that it also slightly speeds up boot performance.
