Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 10/12] rcu: Add sysrq rcu_node-dump capability

Life is hard if RCU manages to get stuck without triggering RCU CPU
stall warnings or triggering the rcu_check_gp_start_stall() checks
for failing to start a grace period.  This commit therefore adds a
boot-time-selectable sysrq key (commandeering "y") that allows manually
dumping Tree RCU state.  The new rcutree.sysrq_rcu kernel boot parameter
must be set for this sysrq to be available.
