Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 048/105] rcu: Force inlining of rcu_read_lock()

From: Waiman Long <longman@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit 6da9f775175e516fc7229ceaa9b54f8f56aa7924 ]

When debugging options are turned on, the rcu_read_lock() function
might not be inlined. This results in lockdep's print_lock() function
printing "rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70" instead of rcu_read_lock()'s caller.
For example:

[   10.579995] =============================
[   10.584033] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[   10.588074] 4.18.0.memcg_v2+ #1 Not tainted
[   10.593162] -----------------------------
[   10.597203] include/linux/rcupdate.h:281 Illegal context switch in
RCU read-side critical section!
[   10.606220]
[   10.606220] other info that might help us debug this:
[   10.606220]
[   10.614280]
[   10.614280] rcu_scheduler_active = 2, debug_locks = 1
[   10.620853] 3 locks held by systemd/1:
[   10.624632]  #0: (____ptrval____) (&type->i_mutex_dir_key#5){.+.+}, at: lookup_slow+0x42/0x70
[   10.633232]  #1: (____ptrval____) (rcu_read_lock){....}, at: rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70
[   10.640954]  #2: (____ptrval____) (rcu_read_lock){....}, at: rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70

These "rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70" strings are not providing any useful
information.  This commit therefore forces inlining of the rcu_read_lock()
function so that rcu_read_lock()'s caller is instead shown.
