Subject: [PATCH v4 1/5] sched/deadline: Refer to cpudl.elements atomically

cpudl.elements is an instance that should be protected with a spin lock.
Without it, the code would be insane.

Current cpudl_find() has problems like,

   1. cpudl.elements[0].cpu might not match with cpudl.elements[0].dl.
   2. cpudl.elements[0].dl(u64) might not be referred atomically.
   3. Two cpudl_maximum()s might return different values.
   4. It's just insane.
