Subject: [PATCH UPDATED 29/36] blkcg: drop unnecessary RCU locking

>From 13d45c32ea856f13cf15ec22ea15f407e46971d8 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Now that blkg additions / removals are always done under both q and
blkcg locks, the only places RCU locking is necessary are
blkg_lookup[_create]() for lookup w/o blkcg lock.  This patch drops
unncessary RCU locking replacing it with plain blkcg locking as
necessary.

* blkiocg_pre_destroy() already perform proper locking and don't need
  RCU.  Dropped.

* blkio_read_blkg_stats() now uses blkcg->lock instead of RCU read
  lock.  This isn't a hot path.

* Now unnecessary synchronize_rcu() from queue exit paths removed.
  This makes q->nr_blkgs unnecessary.  Dropped.

* RCU annotation on blkg->q removed.

-v2: Vivek pointed out that blkg_lookup_create() still needs to be
     called under rcu_read_lock().  Updated.

-v3: After the update, stats_lock locking in blkio_read_blkg_stats()
     shouldn't be using _irq variant as it otherwise ends up enabling
     irq while blkcg->lock is locked.  Fixed.

Updated to remove irq enable while holding blkcg->lock.  This doesn't
affect the following patches.  git branches udpated accordingly.

Thank you.
