Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 7/8] rcu: Add sparse check to rcu_assign_pointer()

From: "Joel Fernandes (Google)" <joel@...lfernandes.org>

The rcu_assign_pointer() function currently doesn't do any sparse checking
on the assigned-to pointer.  So its possible that a pointer that is
not __rcu annotated is assigned with rcu_assign_pointer without sparse
complaints.  Because rcu_dereference() already does such checking,
this commit makes rcu_assign_pointer() to do the same. The extra
error could be helpful in cases where an RCU pointer is assigned with
rcu_assign_pointer() but not annotated with __rcu.

This doesn't generate any code in the normal case because __CHECKER__ is
defined only in the context of sparse.

This commit also renames rcu_dereference_sparse() to rcu_check_parse()
since the checking now happens not only during derereferencing but also
during assignment.

Test: Introduced an rcu_assign_pointer in code and checked the output of
sparse with and without this change. The change correctly causes sparse
to throw an error.
