Queued, thank you, Frederic!

I have also applied your approach to SRCU, and I applied the following
to simplify the code a bit -- please let me know if there are any
problems with this approach.

							Thanx, Paul

rcu: Remove one layer of abstraction from PROVE_RCU checking

Simplify things a bit by substituting the definitions of the single-line
rcu_read_acquire(), rcu_read_release(), rcu_read_acquire_bh(),
rcu_read_release_bh(), rcu_read_acquire_sched(), and
rcu_read_release_sched() functions at their call points.
